Holiday Picks: Movies Worth Sharing

Beasts of the Southern Wild
Available December 4th

While I tend to appreciate all manner of film genre at one time or another, what I truly crave is a film that sticks with me, beyond moments after viewing, rather for days and longer.  Beasts of the Southern Wild was one such movie for both me and my children.  Whether film or live performance, although I certainly have a long list of works I enjoy, few have touched me in the way I was moved by this film.   Created from the unique point of view of the young lead, a six year old character, Beasts of the Southern Wild takes viewers on a journey they will be hard pressed to leave without emotional impact.  With a number of themes running through this work, in the end, the predominant experience is of seeing a challenged and often overwhelming world from the child's perspective and the dynamic relationship between her and her father.  Beyond worth viewing, this film is worth sharing.  I strongly recommend to watch it with your own family.

Teeming with magic, beauty and pure joy, this crowd-pleasing winner at the Sundance Film Festival has emerged as one of the year’s most acclaimed films. Newcomer Quvenzhan√© Wallis delivers an “Oscar®-worthy performance” (Philadelphia Daily News) as Hushpuppy, the six-year-old force of nature in an isolated bayou community being raised by her tough but loving father Wink (Dwight Henry).
