Touted by many as this year's Felicity Jones-type breakout at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, relative newcomer Kaya Scodelario ("Wuthering Heights," TV's "Skins") gives it her all as the titular troubled character in the U.S. Dramatic contender, "Emanuel and the Truth About Fishes." In the coming-of-age drama, directed by "Tanner Hall" co-helmer Francesca Gregorini, Scodelario stars as a motherless young woman who takes a strange fascination to a new neighbor (Jessica Biel) who happens to resemble her dead mother. Little does Emanuel know that the woman next door harbors a huge secret.
