SHONALI BOSE FILM

Tehelka - - MUSIC - BOSE

Benh Zeitlin’s Beasts of the South­ern Wild is an Amer­i­can fan­tasy drama about Hush­puppy, a six-year-old girl liv­ing with her fa­ther in a fic­tional bayou. It deals with the is­sue of floods caused by melt­ing ice caps. But it doesn’t ham­mer the mes­sage home bluntly. In­stead, it is lyri­cal and vis­ually stun­ning. The per­for­mances are breath­tak­ing, es­pe­cially that of Qu­ven­zhané Wal­lis, who plays the pro­tag­o­nist. The cin­e­matog­ra­phy and Zeitlin’s di­rec­tion are bril­liant.
