0 0
Read Time:1 Minute, 6 Second

Little Fish feels a little too close to home. The pandemic themed film starring Jack O’Connell and Olivia Cooke will certainly be perceived differently now than had it been released a year ago. While the pandemic theme surrounds the story, it’s not necessarily the meat of the story. It’s the romance and relationship between Jude (O’Connell) and Emma (Cooke).

Does the plot hold up and have the entertainment value to invest in it? How do O’Connell and Cooke do with their characters? Will the pandemic theme make you feel uneasy and feel eerie? How about rising star screenwriter Mattson Tomlin’s work on this script? I will answer all these questions. Here are the talking points you can expect in the review.

Little Fish is more romance than a pandemic thriller, it’s a slower paced film with terrific actors and a story whose conclusion will have you puzzled at the end.
