TRAILER: Fish Tank...
I love film festivals.
The reason for that are films like True Adolescents or Peter and Vandy, two films that I had the chance to see at this past Waterfront Film Festival. One of those films that I wish I had a chance to see at this upcoming Toronto Film Festival is the new coming of age tale, Fish Tank. Starring Michael Fassbender (Hunger, 300, or best known as the film critic character in Inglourious Basterds) and Katie Jarvis, this film has a great look and feel, and is EXACTLY my type of film. Stylish, low key, and a strong character study. Here is the films synopsis:
In Fish Tank (which is not about Fish or tanks for that matter), 15 year old Mia’s life is turned on its head when her mom brings home a new boyfriend. Arnold casts the same unflinching, unprejudiced gaze and touches on the themes of her Oscar-winning short Wasp to create an original and unsettling tale for our age.
Following his acclaimed central performance in Hunger, Michael Fassbender (300, Inglourious Basterds) stars opposite talented newcomer Katie Jarvis. Rounding out the principal cast are BAFTA-nominated Kierston Wareing (Ken Loach’s It’s a Free World), Harry Treadaway (Control, Brothers of the Head) and 12 year old Rebecca Griffiths making her film debut.
Go see something good!
