Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) on IMDb

It's always good to watch Indie Movies going its way from Sundance to Oscar. This
rough and though inspired Drama that shows the Poverty and Natural Disaster from the Point-of-View of a 6 year old Girl that will amaze with her narrative and courage to help his Dad and herself stand-still, despite the these Beasts that represents the Impact of Natural Disasters. 

This movie is a perfect example of how much you can do with so little. The scenes of the Aurochs destroying the Village is astonishing, and the performance of  Quvenzhané Wallis make us keep watching this little piece of imagination and creativity.

However is Award's Season, and having this Movie taking with the spot of Best Director that everybody were giving already to Ben Affleck (Argo) place this movie in a kinda bitter-sweet spot. The Movie also got nods for the Screenplay, Best Actress for 9 years old Quvenzhané Wallis. The movie also is one of the 9 movies competing for Best Movie... why not 10? Who might be the 10th? Skyfall? Flight?  we'll never know.

Score: 7.65/10
