Coming of Age, Drama
Set against the bleakly beautiful backdrop of the Scottish Highlands, this poignant coming-of-age drama tells the story of Shell, a 17-year-old preparing to leave the isolated area she grew up in. With her mother gone and few customers visiting the remote petrol station she works in, Shell has little in the way of company other than her quiet, jittery father. It is their complex relationship that is the focus of this thoughtful but compelling film. Themes of loneliness and the challenges of growing up are explored sensitively through impressively convincing central performances.
Both atmospheric and effortlessly authentic, Fish Tank is a note perfect story of an adolescent's struggle in a complex adult world.
