February 20, 2013Tweet
In the all-but-forgotten bayou community of Bathtub, a six-year-old girl named Hushpuppy faces the catastrophes of an ailing father and a sinking home with optimism and extraordinary imagination until her faith in the balances of the natural world is tested. Benh Zeitlin’s directorial debut is an adaptation of Juicy and Delicious by his collaborator Lucy Alibar, but it is the surprising and delightful Quvenzhané Wallis that has drawn audiences to this magical film. The film is nominated for a Best Picture Oscar and was winner of the Grand Jury Prize, Sundance; and Camera d’or, Cannes, 2012.
