Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) lives with her devoted father, Wink (Dwight Henry), in the southern delta community of Bathtub, the edge of the world. Wink’s love for his daughter prepares her for the unraveling of the universe, for a time when she must survive on her own without his warm embrace and support. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness the ice caps begin to melt, unleashing an army of prehistoric creatures known as Aurochs. As the waters begin to rise, and her father’s health fades fast, Hushpuppy goes in search of her long lost mother. “The whole universe depends on everything fitting together just right. If one piece busts, even the smallest piece, the entire universe will get busted”.
SHOULD YOU SEE IT?
Winner of the Grand jury Prize For Drama at Sundance 2012 Beasts Of The Southern Wild seems to be a film like no other, with the dream-like flow of Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind and the wonder of childhood, a tale of courage and love.
We don’t know what to expect about this movie. Beasts Of The Southern Wild has been hotly received by critics, and is tipped for best original screenplay at the next Oscars, but it isn’t going to appeal to everyone. To enjoy this film you’re going to need an open mind.
