From Gay Essential
Directed by Canadian John Palmer and based on the short stories by Bruce La Bruce, the 2004 movie Sugar features Andre Noble as a relatively sheltered suburban teenager named Cliff who is brought into the manic whirl of rough urban life by a street hustler named Butch (Brendan Fehr) and the ensuing complexity of their romance. Also in the movie are Marnie McPhail as Cliff’s mother Madge and Haylee Wanstail in the role of his sister Cookie.
“By stage vet John Palmer, this tale of tortured love between a gay youth and street hustler juggles a complex load of emotional and tonal colors within a lean runtime.”
“A screening of Sugar should become compulsory for all young men contemplating the transition from school-yard beat-offs to full-service drug and hustling lifestyles.”
“This is a story of addiction and obsession.”
