About FISH TANK

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.

Acclaim

"BRILLIANT... NEARLY FLAWLESS...THE CONTRADICTIONS OF ADOLESCENCE HAVE RARELY BEEN CONVEYED WITH SUCH AUTHENTICITY AND FORCE. MR. FASSBENDER IS QUICKLY ESTABLISHING HIMSELF AS AN ACTOR OF IMPRESSIVE RANGE AND SKILL. MS. JARVIS’S TRIUMPH, AND MS. ARNOLD’S, ARE HARDLY IN DOUBT."
A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"WONDERFUL. I’M TELLING YOU...TO SEEK OUT FISH TANK BECAUSE IT’S ABSOLUTE DYNAMITE."
Andrew O'Hehir, Salon
"An exhilarating gift. Katie Jarvis hits you like a shot in the heart...filled to bursting with the beauty and raw terror of life.”"
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"A COMMANDING MOVIE, COMPARABLE TO SUCH YOUTH-IN-TROUBLE CLASSICS AS ‘THE 400 BLOWS’"
David Denby, The New Yorker
"BREATHTAKING. TRANSCENDENT...KEEPS YOU IN SUSPENSE UNTIL THE LAST FRAME - AND BEYOND."
David Edelstein, New York Magazine
"GRADE A- VIVID, YOU CAN’T TAKE YOUR EYES OFF KATIE JARVIS."
Lisa Schwartzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
