Performance of the Day

Film: "Fish Tank"
Character: Mia
Year: 2009

I have been waiting for this film to come out ever since I read a great review of it. I was enthralled just five minutes in and couldn't remove myself from the couch for the entire duration. Newcomer Katie Jarvis (who apparently was discovered at a train depot while yelling at her boyfriend) is fantastic in her film debut as 'Mia', a foul-mouthed, rough and tough, low income juvenile who lives in an English housing project. Jarvis is fierce and bitchy, but she showed a sensitive and poignant side of herself that was both moving and alluring.
