Interview: Chad Hartigan on Crafting the Big Feelings of “Little Fish”

“When your disaster is everyone’s disaster, how do you grieve?” Emma (Olivia Cooke) asks of herself midway through “Little Fish,” attempting to come to terms with the insidious memory loss that’s plaguing her partner Jude (Jack O’Connell) as the world collectively begins to feel the effects of a virus known as NIA. It was a line that the screenwriter Mattson Tomlin had tucked into the sci-fi tinged romantic drama back in 2017, yet comes as a gut punch in 2021 when the world grapples with the effects of COVID-19, robbing so many of their loved ones and compromising others in ways that will only surface in the years to come.
