ABOUT THE FILM:
Faced with both her hot-tempered father’s fading health and melting ice-caps that flood her ramshackle bayou community and unleash ancient aurochs, six-year-old Hushpuppy must learn the ways of courage and love. At the center of this raw and lyrical movie about a Louisiana island community on the brink of environmental disaster is the performance of Wallis as Hushpuppy, a charismatic and imaginative young girl who was abandoned by her mother and left to care for her ailing father. The film took prizes at both Cannes, where it won the Camera d’Or, and Sundance, where it won the Grand Jury Prize and prompted critic Manohla Dargis to write in The New York Times, “Nothing else at this year’s festival came close to stirring up the excitement and sense of discovery generated by Beasts.”
