New­comer Katie Jarvis and Michael Fass­ben­der ( In­glou­ri­ous Bas­terds) burn up the screen in Bri­tish film­maker An­drea Arnold’s dev­as­tat­ing comin­gof- age tale. Teenage tear­away Mia ( Jarvis, pic­tured) is a law unto her­self – when not ter­ror­is­ing the res­i­dents of the Es­sex coun­cil es­tate in which she lives, the foul- mouthed 15- year- old is scream­ing ob­scen­i­ties at her ne­glect­ful mum Joanne ( Kier­ston Ware­ing). Hip- hop danc­ing is Mia’s only joy un­til her mum’s lat­est boyfriend, Con­nor ( Fass­ben­der), shows an in­ter­est in the trou­bled young­ster and she de­vel­ops an un­healthy crush.
