Movie Review-Fish Tank

Title-"Fish Tank"


Director-Andrea Arnold

Actors-Katie Jarvis, Kierston Wareing, Rebecca Griffiths, Michael Fassbender



"Fish Tank" is an amazing movie and one of my favorites of 2010. It is about a fifteen-year-old girl named Mia (Katie Jarvis) who lives in a poor section of London with her mother Joanne (Kierston Wareing) and little sister Tyler (Rebecca Griffiths). Mia does not get along well with her family. Since being expelled from school, Mia spends most of her time practicing her hip-hop dancing and dreams of becoming a professional dancer. When Joanne starts dating a man named Colin (Michael Fassbender), Mia is not happy. I don't want to give too much away about the story, because it's interesting and doesn't go where you might expect. The acting in this movie is great, especially by Katie Jarvis, who had never acted before. I think that she should have been nominated for Best Actress for her performance. Kierston Wareing and Michael Fassbender are also memorable. I really recommend watching "Fish Tank".
