Quvenzhané Wallis plays the narrator, Hushpuppy, in "Beasts of the Southern Wild."
Through the eyes of a 6-year-old, “Beasts" shows us an entire new continent unexpectedly close to home.
Hushpuppy's dad, played by Dwight Henry, is harsh but loving and fiercely protective.
"Beasts" takes place in 2005 -- in the days before and after Hurricane Katrina -- but also in a place beyond history.
Fox Searchlight Pictures
At the beginning of the film, Hushpuppy is just a kid. By the end, she’s a tribal elder whose knowledge seems unimaginably vast.
