Fish Tank

UK inner city, the present. 15-year-old Mia’s life comes apart, when her mum brings in her new boyfriend. Trapped in a world that doesn’t respect her and refuses to understand her, Mia creates her own. This is the point where most directors would cop out by serving up another tear jerker involving violence, drugs, teenage pregnancies and the like, but Andrea Arnold masterfully avoids all clichés to weave a gripping tale of stark realism. Jury Prize at Cannes and Best British Performance award at Edinburgh for the very promising newcomer Katie Jarvis. Ην.
