Movie: Beasts of the Southern Wild at Brattle Theatre
Two of best movies of the year (by any accounting), BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD and MOONRISE KINGDOM both feature superlative performances by some very young cast members. In BEASTS, young Quvenzhané Wallis astounds with her portrayal of Hush Puppy - an almost-wild child living in an overgrown and mystical corner of the South called "The Bathtub." When The Bathtub floods (during what is never referenced as such but is clearly Hurricane Katrina) Hush Puppy's father and an assortment of local oddballs refuse to vacate their homes and stage a last stand against conformity and 'domestication.' A moving and magical nouveau Southern Gothic
