Beasts of the Southern Wild
 

Beasts: Awards and Nominations


When Beasts of the Southern Wild premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January 2012, it was a little known indie, very much under the film industry’s radar. Just one year later, we have throngs of supporters across the globe, and are emerging as a true award season contender.

    I have to admit, I hated this movie…

    But I loved it infinitely more.

    I think that’s the magic of this story. It takes you on an experience of ups and downs, love and hate, life and death…so powerful!
    .
    This is a journey I will not soon forget!!!

    Thank you!
