One of the most affecting performances of the year belongs to a child. Hushpuppy, played wonderfully and emotionally raw by Quvenzhané Wallis is at the heart of Beasts of the Southern Wild and the film would have fallen apart with a lesser performance. It’ll be interesting to see what her Oscar chances are as the critics’ awards get doled out at the year’s end.

Beasts of the Southern Wild is a must see for award-show followers and indie film fans. It’s a well-crafted modern day fairytale featuring strong storytelling and astounding performances. Get a better sense of the film’s beautiful landscape and scenery in this new flipbook. 

Official Synopsis: 

Teeming with magic, beauty and pure joy, this crowd-pleasing winner at the Sundance Film Festival has emerged as one of the year’s most acclaimed films. Newcomer Quvenzhané Wallis delivers an “Oscar®-worthy performance” (Philadelphia Daily News) as Hushpuppy, the six-year-old force of nature in an isolated bayou community. When her tough but loving father Wink (Dwight Henry) succumbs to a mysterious malady, the fierce and determined girl bravely sets out on a journey to the outside world. But Hushpuppy’s quest is hindered by a “busted” universe that melts the ice caps and unleashes an army of prehistoric beasts.
