Fish Tank (2009)

Director: Andrea Arnold
Stars: Michael Fassbender, Katie Jarvis, Kierston Wareing, Harry Treadaway, Jason Maza

Most moviegoers know Michael Fassbender as X-Men's young Magneto or Shame's swinging dick. But in the coming-of-age tale Fish Tank, Hollywood's most reluctant leading man plays Connor O'Reilly, the handsome new guy dating 15-year-old Mia's mom. Mia, played by Kate Jarvis, loves rap and wants to become a dancer (sidebar: this movie uses rap better than 90 percent of movies). When O'Reilly initiates an inappropriate relationship with Mia, the film begins taking shocking turns that will leave the viewer breathless.
