Little Fish director Rowan Woods (The Boys) takes full control of his stellar ensemble cast of Cate Blanchett, Sam Neill, Hugo Weaving, Noni Hazelhurst, Lisa McCune and Susie Porter in this gritty and realistic story of mutual struggles between the search for a shining future and a past that will never quite let you go.

Tracy (Blanchett) lives with her mother (Hazlehurst) in the Sydney suburb of Cabramatta - "little Vietnam". Tracy works in a video store (remember them?) but dreams of becoming its part-owner but her drug-riddled past is the root of constant frustration in advancing herself financially.

Still surrounded by drugs but clean, Tracy is slowly drawn back into the scene through a friend and ex-football star Lionel (Weaving). Drugs are a powerful beast to resist and for Tracy, her best intentions find difficulty in places she never expected.

The Age rightly says; "In a superb ensemble cast, Blanchett is spectacularly good, insinuating herself into Tracy's skin, bringing an unexpected and totally convincing heroism to the character's resilience and determination. And Weaving is every bit her equal, immersing himself in Lionel's dismay at how his life has turned out and making the character's situation irrevocably heartbreaking."

High praise indeed for this rarely seen slice of Australian realism.
