In den 1960er/-70er Jahren waren nur wenige Stars so schillernd wie die transsexuelle Vorreiterin Candy Darling. Andy Warhol entdeckte sie und besetzte sie in seinen Filmen. Lou Reed widmete ihr zwei Songs und Tennessee Williams schrieb ihr in einem seiner Theaterstücke eine Rolle auf den Leib. Candys Lebensgeschichte ist eng mit der ihres Freundes Jeremiah Newton verbunden, der in seiner New Yorker Wohnung seit mehr als 30 Jahren all ihre Sachen und ihre sterblichen Überreste aufbewahrt, unfähig, sich von ihr zu verabschieden. BEAUTIFUL DARLING: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF CANDY DARLING, ANDY WARHOL’S SUPERSTAR begleitet Jeremiah auf seinem Weg, Candy zu Grabe zu tragen …
