Movie Info

'Kissing Candice' is a story driven by the vivid, fever dreams of a volatile, teenage girl called Candice. Out of the stifling, isolated Irish community she has grown up in comes a new breed of disillusionment finding its most frightening manifestations in the unpredictable behavior of a local gang. While the community is shaken by the death of a local boy, Candice finds escape in the nihilistic stranger who may be responsible for the crime.


Critic Reviews for Kissing Candice

All Critics (7)

With its fractured, elliptical narrative, Kissing Candice uses its form to perfectly illustrate its content.

For a film so assured, stylised and well-paced, [Aoife] McArdle has certainly made an impressive, and memorable, debut. Let's hope she has more stories to tell. Kissing Candice is not to be missed.

If nothing else its sense of dread is palpable throughout, the lighting and score simultaneously beautiful and panic inducing. It's best when wholly experiential.

The story goes from dumb to dumber, and never has a grip on Candice's opaque if intensely physical presence, let alone her character.

Freed from the constraints of shorter formats, McArdle rushes around her 102-minute runtime with all the curious abandon of a goldfish moved from a small bowl to a massive aquarium.

[T]here is no question that [McArdle] has the potential to become a must-watch indie auteur. Unfortunately, "Kissing Candice" sees her off to a slightly uneven start.
