Fish Tank – nice story, great acting from both Michael Fasbender and Katie Jarvis, the actress that plays Mia, one of the lead characters. Cool thing about it is that Katie Jarvis didn’t have prior acting experience; the director, Andrea Arnold, randomly spotted her having a fight with her boyfriend and that was it! Next thing they know, the won a prize at the Cannes film festival! The younger sister is quite hilarious, too 🙂
