Newcomer Katie Jarvis gives a harrowing and astonishing performance as a 17-year-old girl in filmmaker Andrea Arnold’s “tough and brilliant” (New York Times) British coming-of-age story against a legacy of poverty and neglect. With engrossing verity and acute observation, Arnold (Red Road) refuses to sentimentalize the lives of alienated Mia (Jarvis), her party-girl mom (Kierston Wareing) and her mom’s new boyfriend, a lean, muscular opportunist (Michael Fassbender). “Absolute dynamite” – Salon. Jury Prize-winner at the Cannes Film Festival.
