This film is captivating. You keep wanting to know what's going to happen next, but are afraid to see the fruition of the most current theme. The performances are heart-stopping, the circumstances heart-wrenching, yet there is love, loyalty bravery, fantastic fantasy, and truth to a promise. Make sure you experience it!

Beasts of the Southern Wild

This is an elegantly shot story that captures a snapshot of life in a fictional, backwoods Louisiana community. Being a gal from Small Town, LA, I can vouch for the characters' authenticity. Beasts is the first depiction of unknown Louisiana culture that highlights the beautiful as much as the ugly. Hushpuppy is an absolute DOLL, and she steals the show with her simultaneously wise and innocent expressions. Do yourself a favor and go see this flick. You'll be transported to another life in another land, and you'll find the imagery nothing less than intoxicating.

Really liked this fresh, unique film. Watching the amazing child actress alone is worth the price of admission. Rough characters, rough landscape, rough (unpolished) cinematography all work to provide a surrealistic experience. References to post-Katrina delta and melting ice caps give us scary reminders, but the art of the filmmaking stops short of hitting us over the head with preaching about ecology.

This movie will blow you away with the story line. It is very well written and it's actually one of the 1st movies I have seen in a long time where I would watch it again at the theater. I recommend this to anyone. It will surprise you and melt your heart at the same time.
