Sweetie by Jane Campion( visu )
6 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and Italian and held by 544 libraries worldwide
As Tolstoy asserted, every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way. This unhappy family has never confronted its unhappiness: Sweetie, so called since childhood, the apple of her father Bob's eye and the bane of her mother Flo's smothered existence. Her sister Kay is shy, superstitious, and sexually repressed where Sweetie is loud, slovenly, and quite possibly mentally ill. The family has managed to lead relatively normal lives by denying their bizarre family reality. Sweetie has terrorized her family for years, but an unexpected tragedy is about to loosen her spoiled brat grip on their psyches

Sweetie by Arenafilm( visu )
1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
At the centre of this story of family life is the contrast between the deadpan, phobic Kay and the manic, excessive Dawn (Sweetie). The filmmaker has suggested a key to this thematically fragmented film is the unsettling way that natural performances are framed, a tale of ordinary madness, as it has been dubbed, in which determinedly non-naturalistic surfaces (stylised gestures, off-centre framing, time lapse photography, obtrusive camera placement, and a painterly palette) tend to displace what seems ultimately to be a humanistic concern for 'innocent people ... with access to the darker side of things'.
