A young female intern at a small magazine company becomes involved with a drug-addicted lesbian photographer, both of whom seek to exploit each other for their respective careers, while slowly falling in love with each other.
“A highlight of the 1998 Sundance Festival: Cholodenko depicts with unwavering veracity the breakup of one longtime lesbian relationship just as another, unexpected one begins. The acting of the three women, Sheedy Mitchell, and Clarkson, is superb.” VARIETY
“Clarkson’s Greta… is wickedly funny, while Mitchell’s ingénue convincingly combines puppyish idealism and steely ambition. But it is Sheedy’s Lucy, nonchalantly sexy, sharply intelligent, tough and vulnerable, who is the film’s heart and soul.” MOVIE TALK
“High Art is often compelling and uncannily accurate in its evocation of downtown demi-monde characters and druggy, entropic milieu-the art in this film is high in more ways than one.” FILM COMMENT
