Year: 2009
Rating: 90%


Fish Tank follows the life of a socially distant and emotionally volatile 15-year-old girl named Mia who lives with, but doesn't get along with, her mother and younger sister. Her life is changed when the mother begins dating Fassbender's character Conner. At first, Conner tries to prove himself to be a good stepfather, but ends up being a sorely negative influence on Mia's life. Fassbender is able to infuse an empathetic compassion into an unlikable character in a way that not many actors could manage.
