Hushpuppy Versus the Storm

Beasts of the Southern Wild movieHushpuppy is a 6-year-old girl who lives not with her father, but in the adjacent trailer next to his in a Southern Louisiana bayou. Her mother is long gone and her daddy, Wink, loves her as much as his alcoholism allows. Hushpuppy is alone much of the time, but life holds a pleasant balance – until a storm of coastal-changing capabilities sets its course to her home. In Beasts of the Southern Wild, a dreamy, brutal, yet joyful film, Hushpuppy strives to save herself and her father from a natural disaster – only Hushpuppy doesn’t see it as a storm raging toward them…she envisions prehistoric monsters striding to wreak havoc on the Bathtub, her hometown.
