Andrea Arnold's Fish Tank Confirmed For Cannes Competition
Fish Tank is Academy Award-winning writer and director Andrea Arnold's second feature following her 2006 Cannes Jury Prize winner, Red Road.
The film has been selected for the Official Competition at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival and will be released in the UK through Artificial Eye. Worldwide sales are handled by ContentFilm International.
Following his acclaimed central performance in Hunger, Michael Fassbender (300, Inglourious Basterds) stars opposite talented newcomer Katie Jarvis. Rounding out the principal cast are BAFTA-nominated Kierston Wareing (Ken Loach's It's a Free World), Harry Treadaway (Control, Brothers of the Head) and 12-year-old Rebecca Griffiths making her film debut.
In Fish Tank, 15-year-old's Mia's life is turned on its head when her mum brings home a new boyfriend. Arnold casts the same unflinching, unpredjudiced gaze and touches on the themes of her Oscar-winning short Wasp to create an original and unsettling tale for our age.
Produced by Kees Sasander (Prospero's Books, The Cook, The Thief, His Wife And Her Lover) and Nick Laws and executive produced by Paul Trijbits (Ruby Films) and Christine Langan and David M Thompson for BBC Films, Fish Tank was shot entirely on location in the UK.
