Fish Tank Movie Review

Fish Tank 8/10

I started watching Fish Tank knowing little about it other than the fact that it had won the BAFTA and the Prix du Jury at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival. Mia (Katie Jarvis) has a rebellious potty mouth, likes breakin' (well, trying to, at least) to Eric B and Rakim, and tests the limit of everyone's patience. It is an incisive and depressing look at everyday life in lower class England through the eyes of a teenage girl aspiring to be something more; but is dancing the answer? Her mother's boyfriend tells her that it is and he encourages her. But she pretends to hate him, even though on the surface, he seems to be more like a parent to her than anyone else has (including her mother). His intentions, however, are not entirely clear.
