Beasts of the Southern Wild
Drama • PG-13 • 2012 • 1 hr 33 min
A look into a world and a culture a lot of people do not ever see.
Gorgeous visuals, great child performance and a memorable soundtrack that creates a tone of optimism despite the hopelessness on display
Visually incredible and imaginative. It can be slow in parts but the visuals and sense of child-like adventure more than make up for it.
the only way i could see the picture was by looking in a window of a mirror in a dark place with the sun shining on the horizon
Beautiful and sad. A creative glimpse into the fear and courage of a child
A stunningly powerful look at a culture I didn’t even know existed. An absolute must see.
The world created here is equally delightful and heartbreaking. See it.
It’s amazing. Such a good look into what many people in America don’t think of. Beautifully artistic and a great reminder of what America is
I would recommend this because of how great Quvenzhané Wallis is.
There was lots of buzz about this one, & it was deserved. The style isn’t for everyone, & it never settles on a genre, but it’s beautiful.
