Fish Tank

Friday, January 15 - Monday, March 8, 2010

Final day! Winner, Jury Prize, Cannes Film Festival. Fifteen-year-old Mia (newcomer Katie Jarvis, “The discovery of Cannes.” – indieWIRE) is in a constant state of war with her family, school and neighbors. But when she meets her party-girl mother’s new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender/Inglourious Basterds, Hunger), she’s amazed to find him returning her attention—though his seemingly tender demeanor may hide something more treacherous. A sharp and clear-eyed portrait of teenage sexuality, writer-director Andrea Arnold’s follow up to her acclaimed debut Red Road confirms her as one of the leading figures of new British cinema.
