"You're my friend, kind of."
If you've seen the movie then you'll know when Hushpuppy said this quote. It was also my favorite scene in the movie( I love how she came face to face with the Aurochs). I think Quvenzhané Wallis did an excellent job and I could see why the movie got the recognition. She narrated the story quite beautifully. You can't help but be involved in the journey that she took till the very end of the movie. When the movie ended, I wondered what would happen to Hushpuppy, what she would grow up to be, and (SPOILER ALERT, don't read the next sentence) how she dealt with her father's death afterward or even how her life would change without him in her life.
Overall it was a well-told story and although I didn't agree with her father staying to ride the storm, I still think that his decision made for an intriguing story( but in real life please don't stay if there's a great storm coming to your town to flood it. Leave and leave sooner rather than later.) I love how the community Hushpuppy lived in celebrate and look out for each other ( I wish more neighborhoods could be like this). They cared for one another despite their situations. I thought their care for each other was captured wonderfully or rather magically at the beginning and end of the movie. The movie is shot in a documentary-style and might not be for everyone because of that (also a few scenes may be disturbing for young/adult viewers alike) but it's something new, an original story-telling experience, and above all a noteworthy look into a life of a little girl from southern Louisiana bayou....
P.S. Beasts of The Southern Wild is based on a short story by Doris Betts. The full title of the book is called Beasts of the Southern Wild and Other Stories. It was written in 1973. The collection was nominated for a 1974 National Book Award.... I hope more books would be made into movies....perhaps and hopefully House Trap:).....I'm just saying:) anyways thanks for reading my review on Beast of the southern wild. I hope you keep coming here to read what i have to write next. Take Care!!!
P.S.S. Just wanted to add that I love the theme song of this movie. It fitted the mood and the situation quite well.
