THE DIRECTORS OF THE FILM MUST BE FROM NAWLINS!
Recently, my family and I went to see "Beast of the Southern Wild" and the story was surreal! Of course, I cried as characters, Hushpuppy and her Dad (both - novice actors) were outstanding in their performances! We are originally from New Orleans living in Dallas post Katrina, so it was easy to put ourselves in the "BathTub"! The "spirit" of the film is naturally, Nawlins as there are many diehards who refused to leave the city come hell or high waters; they like the people on the Bayou are resilient - Katrina was a perfect example! Because of Hushpuppy, I would bring my grand-daughter to see this beautiful movie!
