    "Fish" IS WELL Worth the time. It's a poignant study of adolescence; a tale of a sgle Mom and her 2 daughters (the younger reminded me of Jodie Foster as a child). Looking for security, seeking acceptance and love. Drinking, swearing, living w/ the hangovers of life. Not able to get out of their rat hole, not possible to alter the course of their poverty. They strained @ the seams, and I kept waiting for the whole house of cards to tumble. The 15 yr old girl was esp. wonderful; one roots for her break-dancing dreams; one worries about the chances she takes daily. Not a happy story, but a valid reflection of life on the edge. The man in their lives (younger'n the Mom -- older'n the girl) forced the story forward, w/ surprising, but unpredictable results. The movie lingers in the backroads of my mind. mb ps I shld mention that the theater was mostly empty, and upon leaving I asked a couple of men what they thot and one said "boring; too long; a skunk", (?)
