Wish more people had Hush Puppy's self-confidence, resilience, and positive self-image

After seeing Beasts of the Southern Wild, I was left wondering how Hush Puppy grew to be so strong at such a young age. As a retired middle school teacher, it occurred to me that among others, an audience for which this film was made would include the school bullies. I wish someone would write a curriculum using this film as a springboard for developing self-confidence, resilience, and self-image, which are three characteristics Hush Puppy has and bullies lack.

Oh my gosh. You must be kidding. Worst bunch of garbage I've ever seen. Left the theater. Wish I had my money back. If this is award winning film I'm must be on the wrong planet. Story was stupid and camera work gave me a headache. My girlfriend and I felt violated when we left the theater. Sick from the beginning.

A little depressive, and didn't understands a lot it but the picture seems like it was made in another world, I know the South is rough but that was down right oppressive.

All the revews before my post totally capture my feelings and interpretation of this film. It's hard to describe, and is a film that you just have to see to understand what everyone is talking about. I am a huge fan of independent films and as I always say, it's a shame that so many people never see such quality films, and they spend millions of dollars on such crappy mainstream block bushers. What a loss for them. If this movie is playing in a theater near you, go see it.

The movie did not appeal to me at all. It is not beautiful, but depressing. It is not hopeful but hopeless. Yes, we must learn to overcome the wild things in life but there must be a better, more hopeful way to show this. I left feeling sad for a little girl with little hope and little love.
