Opening in theatres this Friday from director Benh Zeitlin and Court 13 Pictures comes a look inside the mind of a child who sees BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD.
This film tells the story of Hushpuppy (Quvenzhane Wallis), a six-year-old girl living with her father Wink (Dwight Henry) in a place in the Southern Delta they call The Bathtub.
Wink is ill and tries to prepare Hushpuppy with tough love and the ability to take care of herself. But in Hush Puppy’s world things are now out of whack as a prehistoric beast known as aurochs have been released from the polar ice caps. The storm comes for The Bathtub and everyone in it.
With everyone so out of sorts for Hushpuppy, she goes in search of her long lost mother to help set things right. In a moment her life comes into focus as she takes on everything that lay in front of her, even the aurochs.
