BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD (Sundance Film Festival Park City Utah USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

Beasts of the Southern Wild deserves every accolade it has ever received. It’s a not-to-be missed film that tells the story of Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis), a six-year-old girl, living outside a Louisiana levee with her alcoholic father, Wink (Dwight Henry), in a destitute area named The Bathtub. Brutally honest and realistic, the film does not apologize for real life situations, desperate solutions, love and loyalty within marginalized communities, the importance of free will in lifestyle, and the value of choice in place of living. Courageous and engulfing, the film supports itself on exceptional acting, wonderful metaphors, and an outstanding script.
