Synopsis

Teeming with magic, beauty and pure joy, this crowd-pleasing winner at the Sundance Film Festival has emerged as one of the year’s most acclaimed films. Newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis delivers an “Oscar®-worthy performance” (Philadelphia Daily News) as Hushpuppy, the six-year-old force of nature in an isolated bayou community. When her tough but loving father Wink (Dwight Henry) succumbs to a mysterious malady, the fierce and determined girl bravely sets out on a journey to the outside world. But Hushpuppy’s quest is hindered by a “busted” universe that melts the ice caps and unleashes an army of prehistoric beasts.

Reviews

Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald | July 20, 2012

A beautiful, strange tone poem about childhood and innocence.

Tom Long Detroit News | July 19, 2012

The atmosphere Zeitlin develops here is moist with promise and danger, and he moves back and forth between outright fable and pungent reality with an astounding sureness of vision for a first-time director.

Lisa Kennedy Denver Post | July 13, 2012

Beasts is film as natural mystery museum.

Liam Lacey Globe and Mail | July 13, 2012

Beasts of the Southern Wild marks one of the most auspicious American directorial debuts in years.

Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer | July 12, 2012

Beasts of the Southern Wild is like outsider art: patched together with found materials, conjured up by untrained artists (the actors), and evocative of a truly American attitude of eccentricity, boldness, transcendence.

Colin Covert Minneapolis Star Tribune | July 12, 2012

It hews to no aesthetic or political party line. It is simply life, seen through the kaleidoscope eyes of a brave, imaginative child.

Bill Goodykoontz Arizona Republic | July 12, 2012

It's unlike any film you've seen.
