Cannes Takeover


Set in East London, an aggressive teenage girl, hoping to walk away from her impoverished life by winning a national dance competition, falls for her mother’s charming, handsome new boyfriend in this invigorating drama that won the Jury Prize at Cannes and the BAFTA for Best British Film.

Our take

Our Cannes Takeover continues with Andrea Arnold’s breakthrough, landmark social realist drama. A raw and potent look at a young woman’s rocky youth amidst poverty, Fish Tank is one of the best British films of the last decade. The fierce acting career of Michael Fassbender all started here.
