Beasts of the Southern Wild

USA – Benh Zeitlin – 1 hr 31 min

This is an exceptional American independent feature. A six year old girl from the southern Delta searches for her long lost mother after her father falls ill.  The world seems to be spinning out of balance as sea levels rise, strange animals appear, and a foreboding sense of apocalypse descends.  This truly unique film won the Grand Jury Prize at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.

  1. Can’t wait to see “Beast of the Southern Wild”. When is it coming to Ambler Theatre? The trailer is fantastic.

  2. Marie,

    We currently have Beasts of the Southern Wild scheduled to open at the Ambler on Fri, July 20th. This is subject to change, but we are very excited about this film and looking forward to bringing it to the theater.


  3. Judy,

    Thanks for your post. We are not currently planning on doing a Q&A. It does look like a movie that would inspire lots of conversations, however. Please feel free to post any thoughts or comments you have about the film here on the blog.


  4. Hi,
    How long will “The Beast of the Southern Wild” be at the Ambler ?
    I’ve heard so much about this movie, that I really don’t want to miss it.

  5. This was perhaps THE most intriguing film we have seen all year to date. (and we see lots and lots of films) I LOVED it. I can’t stop thinking about little Hush Puppy, her ‘dad’ and all the people in the film. Have visited that area before Katrina and was familiar with the abject poverty some of these folks live in. Despite that, this movie conveyed a sheer joy and spirit of determination that was just hard to beat.
