Goldfish Memoirs

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Goldfish Memoirs is a film that focuses on five middle-class Roman Catholic schoolboys: George, Edmund, Berty, Harry and Matthew. Through a series of loosely connected and at many times ambiguous events the film looks at the relationship between the boys and explores universal themes of individualism, tribalism, violence, freedom and love.

With minimal dialogue composed from contemporary speech and the Shakespearean stage, the film employs a non-casual and stylised structure as we follow the group of boys and gradually come to understand the relationships and friendships within.

Using a bold, original uncompromising form, Goldfish Memoirs presents a surprisingly fresh perspective on the ensemble piece, offering a subtle range and understated performances from the excellent young cast.
