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!

Rated as a "must see" by some movie critics, my wife and I felt this was a waste of time and money. No broad appeal, no message that you could carry home - a colonoscopy would have been more fun.

I enjoyed very much the child's perspective througout the move and the mesmerizing acting skills of the little girl. However the story did no quite convey a clear message.

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

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!!!
