The latest from acclaimed sibling directors Josh and Benny Safdie (Daddy Longlegs) blends fiction, formalism and raw documentary as it follows a young heroin addict who finds mad love in the streets of New York.
Harley loves Ilya. He gives her life purpose, sets her passion ablaze. So when he asks her to prove her love by slitting her wrists, she obliges with only mild hesitation, perhaps because of her other all-consuming love: heroin. Heaven Knows What by celebrated filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie (Lenny Cooke, Daddy Longlegs) stars Arielle Holmes as Harley in a searing film debut based on her real-life story of l'amour fou, heroin addiction, and scraping by on the streets of New York City. Co-starring Caleb Landry-Jones (X-Men: First Class, Byzantium) as Ilya, street legend Buddy Duress, and gore rap phenom Necro.
