Beasts of the Southern Wild

President Obama’s Picks of 2012


People Magazine interviewed the President and First Lady of the United States for their year end issue.  When asked what his favorite films of 2012 were, the President had this to say:

People: A movie you loved so much the past year you’d see it again?

The President: Beasts of the Southern Wild was spectacular. We saw it with friends and my nieces, one of whom is only 4 years old, and it captivated all of them.

A shout out from the President is a pretty cool way to end an incredible, amazing, unforgettable year! So much to be thankful for as we head into 2013. Needless to say, we’ll never forget this moment.

    Nice to know that Mr Obama get to see movies . . . with his family. If I could pick one movie he should se, it would be . . . I’m so happy he’s seen this wondeful movie. I’m sure its wonders and warmth made him happy, a much-needed experience for a president these days.
