Fish Tank

You could call this the British version of Precious, except the Brits have gone in for this sort of bleak kitchen sink realism since the early '60s. First-time star-in-the-making Katie Jarvis is Mia, an admirably unsympathetic 15-year-old girl who dreams (in vain, probably) of becoming a hip-hop dancer, but lives her life in the crushing poverty of a London housing project. Things get even more complicated when her drunk-ass mom brings home a new boyfriend (Michael Fassbender from Inglourious Basterds). Not the most cheerful of films, of course, but a powerhouse. 123 minutes
