In brief: Fish Tank
Dark tale of a teen in an English housing block and what happens when her mom gets a new boy friend. Actually its her life and what happens. Yes she is drawn to her moms boyfriend and yes things go wrong. Where it goes and how it goes is the story.
I'm at sixes and sevens about it. Its a good film, but its not something that clicked with me. Its a slice of life with a side of ugliness, but really well done. I think my problem is that its the banality of existence a bit too drawn out. Yes we experience the boredom, but its a tough slog, or it was for me.
