Beasts of the Southern Wild

"Once there was a Hushpuppy and she lived with her daddy in The Bathtub."

This AFI Winner and Oscar-nominated coming of age tale sees Hushpuppy facing her father’s failing health and the melting ice caps that contribute to the flooding of her community on the “wrong” side of a levee system and frees the prehistoric aurochs. This spectacle is a fantasy which celebrates survival and thriving in a world of adversity. This is a debut performance for Quvenzhané Wallis and she is fabulous. This is visually arresting and Wallis, as Hushpuppy, is a force of nature.
