  • After a couple of minor ingenue roles in her native Australia, actress Abbie Cornish attained instant superstardom down under with a hypnotic, evocative, and multi-layered lead performance in director Cate Shortland's well-received psychological drama Somersault. That film -- about a fragile young woman who comes completely unhinged while trying to build a new life for herself in a snowy Australian town -- spoke volumes about Cornish's raw ability and foreshadowed a long and successful career for the young dramatist. She reinforced these notions with an equally demanding and harrowing turn as an art student who slides backward into heroin addiction in Neil Armfield's justly praised Candy (2005). Dissatisfied with the limitations of the Australian film industry, Cornish then jumped ship and went Hollywood, where she tackled supporting roles in such features as the 2006 A Good Year (opposite fellow Aussie Russell Crowe) and the 2007 period piece Elizabeth: The Golden Age. She kept up her period piece bona fides in 2008's Bright Star, but that same year she played in the Iraq War drama Stop-Loss. She had a very busy 2011 with parts in the fantasy action film Sucker Punch, a supporting turn in the box office hit Limitless, and the lead in the Madonna directed period drama W.E.

When you can stop, you don't want to. When you want to stop, you can't.

Sweet Pea: Everyone has an Angel. A Guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it's us. Its everyone of us who holds power over the world we create.

Sweet Pea
And finally this question, the mystery of who's story it will be. Of who draws the curtain. Who is it that chooses our steps in the dance? Who drives us mad? Lashes us with whips and crowns us with victory when we survive the impossible? Who is it, that does all of these things?
Sweet Pea
Who honors those we love for the very life we live? Who sends monsters to kill us, and at the same time sings that we will never die? Who teaches us what's real and how to laugh at lies? Who decides why we live and what we'll die to defend? Who chains us? And Who holds the key that can set us free... It's You. You have all the weapons you need. Now Fight!

This can't be. We did everything right.

Sweet Pea
She wasn't impressed! All that gyrating and moaning... the dance should be more than just titillation, mine's personal it says who I am. What the heck does yours say?

Sweet Pea
(Opening Narration): Everyone has an angel, a guardian who watches over us. We can't know what form they'll take: One day old man. Next day, little girl. But don't let appearances fool you. They can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet they're not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart, reminding us it is us, it's everyone of us who holds the power over the worlds we create. We can deny our angels exist, convince ourselves they can't be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places, and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They'll shout through demons if they have to, daring us, challenging us to fight.
Sweet Pea

Who chains us and who holds the key that can set us free? Its you, you have all the weapons you need, now FIGHT
