Something 'Wild' at cinema

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 by The Press in Focus

One of the pleasures of summer movie-going is discovering a less-trumpeted movie amidst the summer blockbusters.

"Beasts of the Southern Wild" is one such film.

The film's intriguing title reveals little. Even after seeing the film, you may not be able to describe what you have seen. However, you will know you've had an extraordinary film-going experience.

"Beasts" tells the story of six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané "Nazie" Wallis), a motherless child. The parenting skills of her father, Wink (Dwight Henry), border on child abuse.
