123 mins – United Kingdom / Netherlands 2009 – Dir: Andrea Arnold
Featuring: Katie Jarvis, Michael Fassbender and Kierston Wareing
The critically adored, BAFTA-winning drama centres around Mia (Katie Jarvis), a volatile 15-year-old who is always in trouble and who has been excluded from school and ostracised by her friends. Enter Connor (Michael Fassbender), her erratic mother’s new boyfriend. Easy-going, charismatic and articulate, Connor represents a new world of possibilities for Mia, outside of her insular Essex housing estate. Jarvis shares a similar background to her character and was discovered by director Andrea Arnold while in an argument with her boyfriend at the Tilbury train station, which features in the film.
