Syd, who lives with her boyfriend James, goes to complain to her neighbor about the leak in the ceiling. Her neigbor is photographer Lucy Berliner and Syd starts to fall in love with her. Written by
High Art is an absorbing study of dependency, both chemical and emotional. Sheedy plays Lucy Berliner, a famed photographer who hasn't published in ten years. She's whiled away the years living in New York with her German girlfriend, both heroin addicts. Not the strung-out mainlining Panic in Needle Park types, but more refined; they toot more than they shoot.
Along comes a young assistant editor of an art magazine who first wants to advance her career by cajoling Lucy to begin working again, and later falls in love with her.
The movie shines in its matter-of-fact treatment of living and loving among New York's new Bohemians. Well worth the rental, and I hope this signals Sheedy's return to film...she's great.
