Beasts of the southern wild

Hushpuppy is a six-year-old living in an isolated bayou community. When her father Wink becomes ill, she sets off for the outside world in an attempt to help him. The journey to save her father is delayed by a 'busted' universe that reverses weather patterns and brings about long-extinct animals. Can Hushpuppy save the day? Bonus features include the making of Beasts of the Southern Wild and the theatrical trailer.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is a very well done film. It is one of those films that had to be shot outside of the clutches of the Hollywood Money Complex. "Hushpuppy" takes on a journey of growth and understanding. Most of the characters you don't want to sympathize with, however, you find yourself caring deeply for all of them, a sign of a well-developed script. This film is a flawless gem.
The actors are outstanding: Quvenzhané Wallis, Dwight Henry, Levy Easterly, Lowell Landes, Pamela Harper.
