Movie Reviews

Sweet Jane
Kim | Tampa, FL | 04/06/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a "sleeper" well worth watching!!! I was up very late one night and saw it on some cable premium channel. It stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a young teenager with full blown aids (due to reasons his step-father is responsible for). He is a foster child that spends most of his time in and out of hospitals who refuses to take his medicine. He has seen what aids did to his deceased mother and his dead heroin junky brother. Jane is also an addict; who is well known at the local hospital for frequent overdoses; only this time, she is informed that she is hiv positive. she doesn't want to face the facts, and leaves the hospital on her own will; not knowing that he is watching her. it is a sad, but honest look at the way people and society deal with this dreaded disease and drug addiction. he follows her out of the hospital because he thinks "she is an angel"... at first, she is appalled by his constant pursuit of him following her--but the two become in-seperable in the end. it is a twisted kind of love story; each try to help the other even though neither want to honestly comply. fate plays its hand in a wicked way; but the two find what they really want and deserve. don't miss out on this... its a real eye-opener."
Truthful, beautiful, memorable.

"I caught Sweet Jane as a midnight movie, as I'm assuming is the norm. This movie was haunting. The high of love, the high of heroin, the low of death, and the low of addiction all play combatting roles in this movie. If you're in for a tear-inducing depressing, but still wonderful film, watch Sweet Jane."
Shockingly Beautiful

"The opening sequence for this film was a real sitter downer, (if thats what you'd like to call it). It captivated me. The whole movie..captivated me. It is such an awesome love story, unlike any other I have ever seen."
Good movie, but be prepared

"I also saw this movie on a premium channel late one night. I started watching it because I am a big fan of Samantha Mathis, and I was familiar with Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This is a very good independent movie (actually from 1997, not 1998), but it is also quite harsh. The reality of life on the streets hits the viewer head-on, much as in the superior film Trainspotting (which provides a much better picture of life on the streets and the effects of heroin addiction than Sweet Jane). This movie, gritty as it is, is ultimately about a very pure, innocent love. But as is the norm for indy films, it is a love that is doomed to end in tragedy. I do recommend this movie, but please be aware from the beginning that this is not a happily-ever-after film. It is dark, bleak, and disturbing, with an ending likely to haunt you well after the credits roll."
