Emanuel & The Truth About Fishes Trailer
Maternal drama for Biel and Scodelario

19 April 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams

Part of this year's Sundance UK line-up is the indie drama Emanuel And The Truth About Fishes, by director Francesca Gregorini (Tanner Hall). It  stars Jessica Biel, Kaya Scodelario, Alfred Molina and Frances O'Connor. A good time for a studio to get a trailer online then, and look, here's one just arrived! 

A bit of a Stoker vibe there, we're feeling, although it's obviously just coincidental since the films were in parallel production. A slightly chilly psychological drama, it's about troubled teen Emanuel (Scodelario), whose mother died in childbirth, developing an obsession with neighbour Linda (Biel) for whom she helps babysit. 

Early reports about the film revealed that its general premise was something strange specifically to do with that baby, but since the trailer goes nowhere near the subject, that may constitute some sort of spoiler. Suffice to say that there's more going on in the film than is immediately apparent from the clip.

Intrigued? Then hie thee to Sundance UK at the O2 in London between April 25 and 28, since the film doesn't have a general distribution deal anywhere for the time being.
