James Rasin's recent bittersweet documentary revisits the short but fabulous career of Candy Darling (born James Slattery, in a Long Island suburb). Living as a woman, Darling became an actress and a fixture in the 1960s New York art scene, including Warhol's Factory, before dying young from cancer. Rasin mixes interviews of Darling's contemporaries with archival footage and excerpts from Darling's letters and diaries. A must-see for Warhol completists. Starts Fri., May 20. Oaks
