The flawed, broken characters in the film Little Fish meander through their lives with limited motivation and even less ambition. From the start, you know they'll eventually converge, giving them the incentive they need to just do something. Cate Blanchett plays a recovering heroin addict who, despite staying clean, hangs out with the worst possible people: a dealer ex-boyfriend, a directionless brother, and a drug-addled pal (and part-time lover) who's always looking for a score. Hugo Weaving — so staid and cool in The Matrix and the Lord of the Rings movies — plays a twitchy, sweaty junkie who sets up the film's gripping last act. The final scene is one of the year's most redemptive.
