The US trailer for Andrea Arnold directed and written film “Fish Tank,” which was an official selection at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival and the most honored British film last year, has hit the web.
“Fish Tank” synopsys: Everything changes for 15 year old Mia when her mum brings home a new boyfriend.
“Fish Tank” is a coming of age movieset on a rundown English council estate. The characters are filled with equal measures of frustration, anger, longing and alcohol, without means to release the pressure. The decaying situation is played out with a credibility that leaves the audience unsurprised at the outcomes but gripped by the tension. With nowhere to go but down, the mood is deliberately oppressive. The tank is grimy, and breathing underwater almost impossible, but even so we glimpse gold on the scales of these fish.
This is the latest movie from Arnold, Academy Award-winning British filmmaker (Best Short Film “Wasp”). She won 2006 Cannes Jury Prize for “Red Road.” Starring: Michael Fassbender, Jason Maza, Kierston Wareing, Harry Treadaway, Katie Jarvis, Rebecca Griffiths and Sydney Mary Nash.
IFC Films will open “Fish Tank” in US for a very limited release on January 15th, 2010.
