Fish Tank

Director : Andrea Arnold | UK | 2009 | Colour | 124min

After stunning the world with her directorial debut Red Road, Andrea Arnold once again surprises with this Jury Prize winner at Cannes. Fish Tank is both a kitchen sink drama and a coming-of-age tale, with the housing projects as a social backdrop. It sensitively chronicles angry, rebellious Mia's prickly relationship with her family, which includes her single mother and her sharp-tongued younger sister. But when mum brings home a charming Irish boyfriend (Hunger's Michael Fassbender, smoldering as an object of desire), it gradually and irrevocably alters the family's dynamics.
