Synopsis

A beguiling blend of fantasy and drama seen through the eyes of a remarkable child, this beautifully shot story of an isolated community threatened by a storm is a genuine one-off. Six-year-old Hushpuppy is given to pondering her place in the universe, making her ultra-aware of the strange and wonderful world around her in the Louisiana bayou (the wetlands outside of New Orleans). Quvenzhané Wallis has been singled out for the highest praise for her utterly natural and totally compelling performance as the little girl whose spirit and imagination soars above everyday hardship.
