Flix Not to Miss: Fish Tank

 

Fish Tank written and directed by Andrea Arnold was a break out hit for one of its stars Michael Fassbender and it put Arnold on the map as a director when it won a BAFTA award for Outstanding British Film.  Fish Tank stars Katie Jarvis (Mia) as a 15 year old girl living in a working class high rise in Essex with her mum Joanne (Keirston Wareing). Mia spends her days being a tomboy, hanging with her friends, and choreographing dances in vacant apartments.

When her mom brings home new boyfriend, Connor (Michael Fassbender), the film deftly portrays Mia’s sexual awakening and her heartbreak to the realities of her world in Essex. The film is available on Amazon Instant and Netflix. Please check it out.
