Forgotten Movies: FISH TANK
Andrea Arnold wrote and directed this British film in 2009. I am on a bit of a Michael Fassbender kick and I remembered this one when I saw his credits on IMDB.
It's the story of a teenager being raised by an awful mother but who is somehow is strong enough not to allow it to ruin her life. When her mother's new boyfriend shows a (at first) kindly interest in her interest in dancing, things look up.
Reminds me a bit of an English version of DIARY OF A TEENAGE GIRL of two years ago. And it brings up the question of how can single mothers introduce men into their households without endangering their teenage daughters? Scary, exhilarating
