An artificial eye production, Fishtank is the story of Mia, a volatile 15-year-old, who is always in trouble and who has become excluded from school and ostracized by her friends.
One hot summer's day her mother brings home a mysterious stranger called Connor who promises to change everything and bring love into all their lives...

Deffinately worth seeing, a truly British film, some really lovely cinematography (my favourite bit when Mia is on Connor's back in the field and the pace slows right down, the director has made a point of their breathing, which is ever so slightly made louder, and which he does at several other points in the film too). I did feel really sorry for Mia, as if her personality and character have been sculpted due to her mother's insolence and out of desperation for her situation, as if she needs to fit in with her familys exterior image. When really she is just a girl who wants a chance, wants to fit in and wants to be loved.
