"For the animals that didn't have a dad to put them in a boat, the end of the world already happened."
Beasts of the Southern Wild is Behn Zeitlin's directing debut which earned Best Director Oscar nomination for him. Deserved!
I enjoyed the movie very much and there are couple of reasons for it. To begin with, Quvenzhane Wallis, whose performance I consider to be the best this year. This 6 years old (she was six during filming) girl's acting is so confident, emotional, beautiful and natural that it made me love the whole film.
Hushpuppy (Wallis) is a little girl under guardianship of her father - Wink (Dwight Henry). She has never seen mom, who abandoned family the moment child was born. Wink tends to drink pretty much and makes daughter live separately. However dad tries to teach Hushpuppy how to do things herself - father would not always be able to take care.
