Angel Baby is a drama about the relationship
between two schizophrenic people who try to make it together without
therapy or meds. Harry (Irish actor John Lynch) attends a support group
which has a new attendee in Kate (Jacqueline McKenzie). He falls for her
instantly and follows her around. Over the night, they fall for each other
and things develop quickly to the point that they move in together and
fend for themselves. Everything is going fine, Harry even gets a job then
Kate gets pregnant and they both decide to go off the meds. Then things go
haywire. Their behaviour begins to change radically that it concerns
Harry's brother and wife (Colin Friels and Deborra-Lee Furness). When
kicked out of their flat, they squat at a construction site, putting the
baby at risk.
A pretty decent look at mentally ill people
trying to live their lives with a couple of excellent performances from
Lynch and McKenzie. It's a tough watch, but it's well worth a look.
