From Gay Essential
Lisa Cholodenko’s charming feature film debut High Art released in 1998, stars Radha Mitchell as Syd, a scrappy, lowly intern at a photography magazine, who is pulled into the hedonistic orbit of her intriguing neighbour Lucy, who happens to be a well-reputed photographer (played by Ally Sheedy). The 101-minute film grossed just under $2 million at the box office during the year of its release.
Won “BEST ACTERSS” and “BEST FILM” at seven international film festivals
“High Art is a terrific film about ambition in the arts. It is also a harrowing film about heroin addiction, second perhaps only to Trainspotting in its realism and intensity.”
“High Art is masterful in the little details. It knows how these people might talk, how they might respond.”
— Roger Ebert
“HighArt (1998) is a self-conscious and haunting examination of two lives that intersect, painfully and without mercy.”
— Sarah Warn, After Ellen
