Sugar | Chicago Reader

Sugar

Fine performances by the two leads distinguish this offbeat coming-of-age story from Canada, based on several stories by the notorious Bruce LaBruce. Cliff (Andre Noble), a suburban kid seeking out rough trade in the city, falls in love with Butch (Brendan Fehr of Roswell), a crack-smoking male hustler. Soon they're inseparable, but as Butch introduces Cliff to his world of tricks and all-night parties, Cliff begins to emerge from inchoate adolescence. Coscreenwriter Todd Klinck drew on his own experiences as a male hustler, which no doubt contribute to the boys' credibly inarticulate musings, but despite the actors' solid work the drama never quite coalesces. John Palmer directed; with Sarah Polley. 78 min.
