Little Fish - Review
You're Not Easy to Forget. 4 / 5
Directed by Chad Hartigan.
A couple fights to hold their relationship together as a memory loss virus spreads and threatens to erase the history of their love and courtship.
An independent film with big ambition, Little Fish is a reflective film that makes you appreciate the memories you have and the lengths people will go to preserve them and the ones they love.
Olivia Cooke and Jack O'Connell have fantastic chemistry, it really helped to focus this world-altering event on the effect it has on just our two leads and their immediate close circles, helping the claustrophobic undertone that continues to close in as the situation gets more intense.
There is an overwhelming sense of powerlessness which is the film's driving force that creates a unique take on what could have been a typical relationship drama. It's very satisfying when a film has predictable moments yet manages to subvert your expectations and still feel impactful as the filmmakers intended.
Little Fish feels so lived in and is a really bold piece, brilliantly directed and edited to make you question your own mind.
