Wow, I can't stop thinking about this film. Spotted over on Amy's blog, I've watched the trailer three times in the past hour. Beasts of the Southern Wild is about a little girl and her father living in a southern community called the Bathtub. Here's IMDB's description of the film: Faced with her father's fading health and environmental changes that release an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs, six-year-old Hushpuppy leaves her Delta-community home in search of her mother. // Don't let this "strange" description leave you thinking it sounds silly. Watch the trailer below and see for yourself. Man oh man this little lady deserves an academy award.
