Iceland 2014 130 mins. In Icelandic

Director Baldvin ZophonÍasson explores the roots of the 2008 Icelandic economic collapse with an emotionally-gripping ensemble piece focusing on the lives of three characters, each leading a surprising double-life and all in search of redemption: a gifted poet haunted by his past, a debt-ridden young mother making ends meet through illicit ‘moonlighting,’ and a former soccer star-turned-international-banker. In the ‘fishbowl’ of their lives, they navigate the dark and shark-infested waters, hoping to survive. One of the biggest domestic critical and box-office hits in Iceland, Fishbowl is this year’s submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
