Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes. A troubled teen Emanuel (Kaya Scodelario) becomes preoccupied with her mysterious new neighbour (Jessica Biel), who bears a striking resemblance to her dead mother. In offering to baby-sit Linda’s newborn, Emanuel unwittingly enters a fragile, fictional world, of which she becomes the gatekeeper.
Written and directed by Francesca Gregorini (Tanner Hall), the film is a powerfully captivating movie that stars Kaya Scodelario (Wuthering Heights, Skins), Jessica Biel (Hitchcock, Total Recall), Frances O’Connor (Mr Selfridge, AI), Jimmi Simpson (Date Night, Zodiac), Aneurin Barnard (Citadel, Ironclad) and Alfred Molina (An Education, Chocolat).
EMANUEL AND THE TRUTH ABOUT FISHES tells a story that is both haunting and touching, and following its nomination for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance Film Festival, has already started accumulating awards, including the recent Best Ensemble Cast and Best Cinematography at the Ashland Film Festival.
