One of the signature films of 2012 and one of the more creative American movies in a long while, Beasts of the Southern Wild
introduces us to life in The Bathtub, a desolate island in the Gulf of Mexico near New Orleans. It introduces us to a Hurricane Katrina-like storm that will surely wipe out The Bathtub. And it introduces us to a classic father-child combination: Wink (Dwight Henry) and the precocious Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis). We see the fate of The Bathtub through Hushpuppy’s 6-year-old eyes, and it’s a fantastic bit of wonderment.

'Beasts of the Southern Wild' is a beautiful fantasy you'll hear a lot about come awards season
