Relive this outré version of the American Dream with Candy’s best friend Jeremiah Newton, Candy’s own letters (voiced by Chloë Sevigny), new interviews, and archival footage featuring Warhol, Dennis Hopper, Jane Fonda, and Kim Novak.

Leap Year Leap Year

Winner of the Camera d’Or at Cannes, this subtle examination of how victims internalize the abuse they suffer follows business journalist Laura, whose existence consists of little more than searching for the latest in a string of emotionless one night stands. She strikes up a disturbing relationship with a man whose taste for rough sex appeals to her, for reasons that become more apparent as February 29 approaches.
