Academy Award® winning filmmaker Andrea Arnold’s Cannes Jury Prize winner, FISH TANK is an emotionally stunning coming-of-age story, electrified by the breakthrough performance of its young star Katie Jarvis. Fifteen-year-old Mia (Katie Jarvis) is in a constant state of war with her family and the world around her, without any creative outlet for her considerable energies save a secret love of hip-hop dance. When she meets her party-girl mother’s charming new boyfriend Connor (Michael Fassbender), she is amazed to find he returns her attention, and believes he might help her start to make sense of her life. A clear-eyed, potent portrait of teenage sexuality and vulnerability, FISH TANK confirms writer/director Arnold’s status as one of the leading figures of new British cinema.
Live, love and give as good as you get.. Everything changes for 15 year old Mia when her mum brings home a new boyfriend.
Such a great foreign film from the UK. I wish I bought this. Worth buying.
I watched this movie on tv a few months ago because I'm watching all of his movies since his work in Shame. He is excellent in this movie, as well as Katie Jarvis, who plays Mia. I don't want to give too much away, but halfway through the movie, you'll ask yourself, "Did that just happen?". The pace of the movie starts off slow, but it quickly picks up and you're glued until the end.
Great movie. I thought Katie Jarvis did an excellent job making Mia a likeable character. She's also a talented dancer. But the very last scene ended it on a sour note sort of; so disappointingly cliche. Still liked it a lot tho :)
