Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

A young girl's life on the wrong side of the levee and how even the worst of situations are a grand adventure.

Community and disconnectedness. Mythology and reality. Hope and disappointment. Life and death. Strength and fragility. Destruction and resilience. The forgotten and dispossessed. Journeys and endings.

No matter how cruel and abusive fathers can be they are still giants in the eyes of their children. Maybe we should try and live up to that.

Primal, mythic and touching. Heartbeats, hooves and thunder.
