Story


The most honored British film of the year is Academy Award winning filmmaker Andrea Arnold's Cannes Jury Prize winner, "Fish Tank." The film is an emotionally stunning coming-of-age story, electrified by the breakthrough performance of its young star Katie Jarvis. Fifteen-year-old Mia (Katie Jarvis) is in a constant state of war with her family and the world around her, without any creative outlet for her considerable energies save a secret love of hip-hop dance. When she meets her party-girl mother's charming new boyfriend Connor (Michael Fassbender), she is amazed to find he returns her attention, and believes he might help her start to make sense of her life. A clear-eyed, potent portrait of teenage sexuality and vulnerability, "Fish Tank" confirms writer/director Arnold's status as one of the leading figures of new British cinema.
