BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD
Film 4, Wed 29th October 9.00pm
A.k.a. Quvenzhané Wallis being the cutest thing that ever existed. Set in a potentially global warming altered earth (the details are a little vague, part of the film’s magic), a little girl and her father try and survive in a community forced to change because of flooding. It’s a beautiful film, the acting is top-notch, and the surrealist elements are not overwhelming enough to turn off those who are opposed to whimsy. Also, the soundtrack is awesome, and have I mentioned that Quvenzhané Wallis is really cute? I love it.
