Fish Tank

15-year-old Mia Williams (Katie Jarvis) lives with her single mother Joanne (Kierston Wareing) and younger sister Tyler in a run down block of flats. Suspended from school, she fills her days searching for the next alcohol fix and hanging out in a derelict flat near her home. When her mother brings home new boyfriend Connor (Michael Fassbender) to meet the girls, Mia soon finds herself attracted to him. Unfortunately for all concerned, the feeling seems mutual... Following her brilliant debut feature, 'Red Road', director Andrea Arnold casts the same unflinching gaze on her characters and touches on the themes of her Oscar-winning short 'Wasp' to create an original and unsettling tale for our age. Winner of the Jury Prize, Cannes Film Festival 2009.
