Synopsis:
The acclaimed new film tells the startlingly original and brutally honest story of 15 year-old Mia, brilliantly played by winner Katie Jarvis. A feisty and fiercely independent outsider, Mia is ostracised from her friends and lives uneasily with her volatile mother (Kierston Wareing) in a tough Essex estate from which she longs to escape. But the unexpected arrival of her mother's handsome and charismatic new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender) sparks a catalogue of events that threaten to turn Mia's world upside down.

Candid Camera - Fish Tank review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
23/02/2010

A real highlight from 2009 is Fish Tank where Andrea Arnold finally delivers. I wasn't that impressed with her previous film Red Road, however she's learned from that experience and crafted a candid and startling portrayal of teenage life on a UK housing estate. Katie Jarvis is terrific in her first ever role; substituting her own life experiences for her onscreen character. The end result is an experience that will provoke debate and some sadness at the state of our inner cities and society in general. Also another fine performance from Michael Fassbender.

My God - Fish Tank review by CP Customer

I wasn't expecting this.

At first, you think it's going to be a poor british film, but after a half hour or so, you become intersted in the lead actress and the life she leads-or has no choice but to lead.

A real eye opener.
