Angel Baby

1h 44m Drama, Romance, Australia, Australian 1995

Two schizophrenics meet during therapy and fall passionately in love. Ahead of them lies the inevitable road to disaster - one they share to the end.

Falling in love can be more than a state of mind and being. For defiant young lovers, Harry and Kate, it is an opportunity at salvation and the promise of a new beginning.

Harry (John Lynch, In The Name Of The Father) and Kate (AFI Award winner Jacqueline McKenzie, Romper Stomper) have two intrinsic things in common, they are in love and they are both schizophrenic.

Supported by his brother Morris (AFI Award winner Colin Friels, Malcolm) and sister in, law Louise (Deborra-Lee Furness, Jindabyne) Harry sets out to make the most of his life with Kate, embarking on a whirlwind romance destined to not only test their minds, bodies and souls, but also challenge the perception of the surrounding world to their remarkable plight.

Winner of 7 AFI Awards, including Best Film, Best Director (Michael Rymer), Best Actress and Best Actor, Angel Baby is a touching tale of dedication and propinquity.
