Beasts Of The Southern Wild (2012)

Beasts Of The Southern Wild (2012)
Directed by: Benh Zeitlin
Country: USA

Summary: Hushpuppy and her dad are forced to leave their flooded home.
Review: This is an amazing story seen through the eyes of Hushpuppy, a sweet little girl who lives in the woods of “Bathtub” Island, Louisiana, with her sick dad and a bunch of animals that she called “pets”. After a rainstorm they are forced to evacuate to a hospital in the city, where the doctors will try to “tame” them without success. The concept of home and survival are magnificently portrayed and connected, where the chaos is everywhere, not only throughout the island but also in the Hushpuppy’s mental considerations about the universe. “Beasts of the Southern Wild” is a must see, visually astonishing, surprisingly emotional and filled with many unforgettable moments. One of my favorite movies of the year.
Relevant awards: Cannes, Seattle, L.A., Sundance
