AroView: British actors Olivia Cooke and Jack O’Connell star in US indie, a beautifully directed, pre-CoVid pandemic movie where the mysterious contagion causes victims to lose their memories, with the focus on the tragic breakdown of a romance barely out of its Honeymoon period. It’s touching rather than depressing, though tears will be jerked!
“It makes a global crisis intensely personal, even romantic.” ~John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
“Talk about timing. When he began making Little Fish, an intimate and affecting romance in a sci-fi setting, director Chad Hartigan had no idea the world would be coping with a real pandemic in the real 2021.” ~Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press
