Beasts Of The Southern Wild (2012) - Fantasy Drama

Another Oscar Nomination which doesn’t connects too well with me. Saw it last night – the two things I loved about is the little girl who plays “Hushpuppy” is too good and deserves a standing ovation if not the award, second – the way whole thing is shot in 93 minutes putting across the point of view. Unfortunately couldn’t understand the reason behind the drama but still as a movie it works, the last 20 minutes of the movie as per me was its high point – totally amazing stuff. It’s a moving tale of a little girl staying with her dad in a piece of land which is cut off from the rest of the world – it’s their story of survival. What I don’t understand is – why they don’t move on with the rest of the world but then I guess the story won’t go forward, whatever. I am definitely going to cheer for the little girl on academy awards night, let’s see if she gets it with the solid competition this time around. The movie is worth one watch for sure – letting us know of the struggles people do to survive and fight for their home land which is being taken over by upcoming industries almost everywhere around the globe.
