Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Doesn't add anything substantively new, though it has been nicely directed by Neil Armfield, known in his country for his theater work, and features striking performances from Heat...

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Carina Chocano

    For a druggie movie, Candy is surprisingly dynamic and involving.

  • 60

    Variety

    Life, love and addiction make a mostly bitter, but occasionally sweet, concoction in Oz drama Candy, which is sometimes hard to swallow.
