In Beasts, six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) exists on the brink of orphanhood, in a forgotten but defiant bayou community cut off from the rest of the world by a sprawling levee. Buoyed by her childish optimism and extraordinary imagination, she believes that the natural order is in balance with the universe until a fierce storm changes her reality. Desperate to repair the structure of her world in order to save her ailing father, Wink (Dwight Henry), and sinking home, this tiny hero must learn to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.
Beasts of the Southern Wild, now playing in theaters across the country, earned the Grand Jury Prize (Dramatic) at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and earned director/co-composer Benh Zeitlin the Caméra D’Or at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. The soundtrack, featuring original music by Dan Romer and Benh Zeitlin is currently available via iTunes and other outlets, with a CD release planned for later this year.
5/5 This is a truly wonderful score... I cannot express it enough!
