New Film: ‘Beasts Of The Southern Wild’ Early Oscar Buzz

Movies such as Think Like A Man get a lot of media buzz from blogs or alternative media. I like movies such as Think Like A Man, but I also like independent films that take a risk to bring us stories not often seen. Without a big name producer like Tyler Perry or Oprah Winfrey, films like Precious would just go unnoticed. Pariah is one of those films which we featured on MrsGrapevine.com that didn’t receive the press it deserved. In order to have more diversity in black films, we have to support these independent films. With that said, I want to present this new film to you, Beasts of the Southern Wild, featuring new comer, Quvenzhané WallisBeasts of the Southern Wild  is already generating an Oscar buzz and is set to hit theaters June 27th. Not to mention, it was one of the crowd favorites at the Sundance Film Festival and will be featured at Cannes.

It’s hard to explain what the movie is about, so you will need to watch the trailer. The story takes place in the bayou around the time of a hurricane of biblical proportions kind of like Katrina. The film features a little heroine named Hushpuppy, who finds life in almost everything she sees, even in the midst of tragedy. It’s a message of hope through the eyes of a kid who stills sees the magic in life, even while the beasts of her life follow her around. I love this trailer *whispers to Oprah*!

 The movie is based on play by Lucy Alibar called Juicy & Delicious
