Beasts of the Southern Wild


Beasts of the Southern Wild
This unique, multi-award-winning movie shows what can be done on a shoestring budget. In a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee, a six-year-old girl exists on the brink of orphanhood. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural world is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Theresa Smith quote iconPluck in the eye of the storm.
15
Cape Times
Todd McCarthy quote iconIt's very much an art piece, but it feels like a genuine one that speaks fluently and truly for the place, people and culture it so indelibly depicts.
20
Box Office
Ray Greene quote iconFor once, you can believe the hype.
18
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconSometimes miraculous films come into being, made by people you've never heard of, starring unknown faces, blindsiding you with creative genius. Beasts of the Southern Wild is one of the year's best films.
20
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe film is interesting and original, but it's also a source of repeated frustration that mutes its accessibility and effectiveness.
13
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconHold on for a game-changer that gets you excited about movies again. It's called Beasts of the Southern Wild. It's won every prize from Sundance to Cannes.
