Based On Short Stories By
Based on short stories by acclaimed writer and filmmaker Bruce LaBruce, Sugar is a provocative, challenging and bizarrely funny coming-of-age love story between Cliff (Andrew Noble), a restless teen living in the suburbs, and Butch (Brendan Fehr), a street hustler. Butch challenges Cliff’s sheltered upbringing by exposing him to a different world that changes Cliff forever.
"Two leads are excellent... the script is pared to the essential, without a wasted moment; editorial pace follows suit, yet always seems to catch the right telling detail. John Westheuser's vid lensing is willfully no-frills, underlining story's more brute realities."
