Director Jane Campion's 1989 debut feature plumbs the dysfunctional depths of one Australian family. Thin and mousy Kay works in a factory and lives a dreary existence with her well-meaning boyfriend, Louis. One day, her sister Dawn arrives with her so-called manager, Bob. Nicknamed Sweetie, Dawn is everything Kay is not: boisterous, impulsive, and overweight. Kay is consumed with uptight phobias, while Dawn hangs on to her unrealistic childhood dreams of show business. Meanwhile, their parents, Gordon and Flo, are involved in a strange separation. Kay, Louis, and Gordon trick Dawn so they can visit Flo at a ranch in the Australian outback. Everyone gets together back at the family home where Dawn pulls an immature stunt, exposing the psychological realities of the situation.
