Hushpuppy is a six-year-old girl with the theory that the world depends on the perfect unity of everything and if one thing collapses, the entire universe will follow. She and her sick father find themselves facing the struggle of survival as their secluded home, separated from the rest of the world by a large bayou, comes under threat from a brutal storm. In danger of losing her father and her disintegrating home, Hushpuppy must find the strength, the bravery and the skill to stay alive long enough to find her mother.
Both heartwarming and thrilling, 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' is a wonderful story of mankind and survival, and how the love of one's family can pull anyone through anything. The drama is directed by Benh Zeitlin in his first full length film. It is surreal but strangely genuine, bringing home the importance of hope and emotional strength in life-threatening circumstances. The movie has already been one of the most attention grabbing debuts at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, touching hearts with Hushpuppy's gradual development into more mature, more formidable person. It will face UK cinemas this October 19th 2012.
