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.
DVD, NTSC, region 1, widescreen (1.85:1) presentation; Dolby digital 5.1 surround (English) and 2.0 stereo surround (Spanish).
Beasts of the Southern Wild is a sweet, moving film. The plot is simple but all the actors do an excellent job in keeping the audience's attention. The cinematography is excellent. This indie film is well-made and deserving of the accolades it has received. Very enjoyable!
As someone who doesn't always do well with Expressionist art, I was apprehensive about this movie. I shouldn't have worried. Beasts of the Southern Wild is easily my favorite movie of the year so far. The characters are wonderful and heartbreaking, and the setting is something I have never seen before. If you like tearjerkers and movies with a lot of heart, check this one out.

Quvenzhane Wallis is stunning (and adorable!) as a six year old, near orphan living in an isolated and impoverished bayou community. More character than plot driven, this film won't be for everyone. Gritty and often quite dark but with many poetic moments and some great imagery.
