I felt this movie was like a magical short story - it drifted along amidst laughter, tears, storms and dreams changing our perceptions of reality and forcing us to dismantle any judgements we may have had about people and how they choose to live - on the grid - off the grid - in a dream or in the real world. Go see the film!

This was the most unappealing and depressing movie I have seen in a long, long time. The setting was so bleak and repulsive, you wanted to go home and take a good shower. I guess I missed the point of this movie! And so much for four stars ratings!!!

Hushpuppy and Wink will steal your hearts. One of my favorite movies in the last five years. The storyline pulls you in and doesn't let you go. There didn't appear to be any "acting", the scenes and lines were delivered like a docudrama! Oh and the young actress playing Hushpuppy....wow what a performance....unforgettable!

The young actress was endearing but not exceptional and since she was the main attraction for most viewers, I wouldn't go overboard w/ any great praise for the movie. Her lines were actually minimal.
I found the story grim.

The movie is relatively dull and pointless. The reviews made me expect to see something profound but it certainly wasn't.
