    Synopsis


    Beasts of the Southern Wild
    A six-year-old girl from the southern Delta searches for her long-lost mother after her father falls ill and her world spins out of balance in the film from director Benh Zeitlin that took home the Grand Jury Prize and Best Cinematography award at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. A harsh but loving father, Wink swore that his beloved daughter Hushpuppy would be prepared for the day he was no longer able to look after her. Little did Wink realize that day would come sooner than anyone suspected, and when illness strikes him down, nature runs amuck. As the soaring temperatures melt ice caps and the sea levels swell, a race of prehistoric beasts named the aurochs emerge to reclaim the planet. Meanwhile, as the apocalypse unfolds, determined Hushpuppy bravely sets out on a mission to locate the mother she's never known. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      I thoroughly enjoyed this film and it's definitely one of those that are worth adding to your collection. The cinematography is pretty nice, and the characters are so engaged. This can be a tear-jerker for the warm at heart but it's definitely and inspiring movie!!

      Nice movie, shows perseverance. I admire the strength of the little girl and how her father tried to be there for her even if it wasn't conventional. He wanted her to be strong and self-sufficient .

      I purchased this to show in a college English class I teach. Everyone loved it. That little girl is dazzling; casting is perfect throughout the entire film. Roger Ebert and I give it two thumbs up.

      This film is beautifully shot with a wonderfully heartbreaking story. It's amazing it was made with such a small budget by a first-time filmmaker. It definitely deserved its Oscar nomination.

      I was very disappointed in the movie. I expected much more with all the positive reviews it received at Sundance. Maybe I just wasn't into it and will like it if I EVER watch it again

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Other than a few slow spots where the plot is stalled, it's an overall great movie. The little girl is absolutely brilliant and heartbreaking. Highly recommend this movie.

      This was a quiet sleeping giant! You must see it! This was an independent film that for me snuck in under the radar but man is it great!
