Beasts of the Southern Wild - View Trailer


A visionary film which creates, with passionate conviction and a mastery of film language, a world I had never seen on screen before… Narrated by Hushpuppy (Quvenzhane Wallis), a motherless child who lives with Wink (Dwight Henry), her hard-drinking father, and a dozen or two others on the lush, precarious islands just past the levees that failed New Orleans, the film is not so much magic realism as a realistic depiction of a child's imagination grappling with the beauties and mortal dangers of the natural world and with the humans who nurture it, or threaten its balance and their own lives in the bargain…
