A provocative, challenging and bizarrely funny coming-of-age story set on the crystal-caked streets of downtown Toronto. On the eve of his 18th birthday, Cliffs 12-year-old sister Cookie sends him downtown with a skateboard, a spliff and a direct order to get laid. During the night Cliff meets handsome hustler Butch and is quickly initiated into the hilariously dark and drag-fuelled arena of life downtown. The boys eventually discover the perks and perils of each others worlds; their friendship evolves into romance, yet the notion of intimacy is foreign to them both. Cliff longs for intimacy, but Butchs drug abuse and self-loathing soon eats away at their relationship, and the two boys part company to tragic results...
Sugar - nothing even remotely sweet about this!
If you want to waste your money rent or even buy this film, if you want some advice don't even waste a second looking at it, this was the biggest waste of money I've ever spent and fortunately I only rented it. It's slow, boring and useless. Who ever made this film should never be allowed to make another. WASTE of TIME!!
I think it's a good low budget film and so sad the main actor died so young <3
This reminded me of the TV show shameless in some ways but with-out the comedy!
My only critique of Gay themed films (Including this one) is the inevitable demise of the gay characters involved!
Its as if the only films considered to be worthy of making with a gay story must have even a tragic ending !!
