Our take

Fish Tank kickstarted Michael Fassbender’s acting career, but it was newcomer Katie Jarvis who stole the show with her raw and volatile portrayal of a teenager’s search for transcendence amid poverty. This beautiful, explosive portrait of innocence lost won Andrea Arnold the Cannes Jury Prize.
