Oscar Week 2013: Beasts of the Southern Wild
Nominated for Best Actress - Quvenzhané Wallis
This year's wild card, Benh Zeitlin's magic realist debut feature is a brilliant, distinctive vision of life on the edge of the world.
Quvenzhané Wallis - the youngest ever Oscar nominee for Best Actress - gives a remarkable performance as Hushpuppy, a 6-year-old girl
living on her wits in the Bathtub, a remote southern delta community. With a fierce storm raging and her father falling ill, Hushpuppy has to face the
Bathtub disappearing under rising water and the prehistoric creatures that have been unleashed from melted ice-caps charging across the planet.
