Memory such a powerful thing any human can possess, what if a virus steals those memories? Chad Hartigan’s indie pandemic based love story Little Fish is a gorgeously melancholic and romantic meditation on memory and what it means to be in a relationship that’s slowly growing apart.
Sony Pictures Releasing are bringing this gorgeous little indie starring Olivia Cooke and Jack O’Connell to the UK and Ireland next month.
The pair play newlyweds Emma and Jude find themselves in, not long after meeting and falling in love. When Jude contracts the memory loss disease, the young couple will do anything to hold onto the memory of their love.
Our writer Georgia May had a chance to review the film back in February. She enjoyed it very much calling it “Chad Hartigan’s sci-fi romance is a timely tale of love that’s not-quite-lost—but very much on the brink. ”
There is no UK Trailer yet for the film, here’s the U.S version of the Trailer…

With no rhyme or reason, people start to lose their memories. For some, it happens in a snap, all at once. For others, it’s a slow fade. They forget the name of their third-grade teacher. They forget to show up to their best friend’s wedding. Eventually they forget themselves, and everything that makes them who they are. This is the world Emma (Olivia Cooke) and Jude (Jack O’Connell) find themselves in not long after meeting and falling in love. After the devastating realization that Jude has contracted the disease that will eventually wipe his memory, the young couple will try anything to keep themselves from forgetting the love they share.
The film also stars Soko, Raúl Castillo, and David Lennon.
Little Fish will be released in the UK and Ireland from 10th May on Digital Download.
