Enjoyable British Film!

Great movie! Fish Tank is different than most. It's a British drama (easy to understand - unlike some British speaking movies!) based on a 15 year old teen struggling to figure out where she belongs. She loves dance but doubts her potential. Her mother treats her like she doesn't exist. She has a crush on her mother's boyfriend who also likes her back - they share a fling towards the mid-end of the film. She sppears to have no friends (at least in the movie) except for a boy her age she later meets. The story is quite good although slow, presents the challenges of a typical teenager who just wants a chance without getting stomped on. Very unique film! Watch out for language, drinking and smoking (even by small children) and sexual content (Two sex scenes and plenty of sexual innuendo). Worth watching!!
