The World's Bravest Little Girl
She has the biggest heart and is the bravest of the brave! Hushpuppy is a girl who can change the world and is a child who can show you how beautiful life is. Beasts of the Southern Wild tells the tale of struggle, pain, loss, perseverance, and bravery.
From the back of the bayou to the shelter, the fight to stay together is a risk worth taking. In this film, you meet a community that sticks together no matter what! Especially a father and daughter (Hushpuppy) -- death and fear are not options for them.
The journey Hushpuppy takes in this film is amazing; she becomes a strong, independent young woman right in front of our eyes. But, she has no choice! It's time to grow up and face the very real, cold world at a young age. It's ok though; she handles it like a champ and, needless to say, is a force to be reckoned with.
I will leave you with a quote: "When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me lying around in invisible pieces. When I look too hard, it goes away. And when it all goes quiet, I see they are right here. I see that I'm a little piece in a big, big universe. And that makes things right. When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They gonna know, once there was a Hush puppy, and she live with her daddy in the Bathtub. The whole universe depends on everything fitting together just right. If one piece busts, even the smallest piece... the entire universe will get busted." Hush Puppy- Beasts of the Southern Wind
Hushpuppy I applaud you, even though you maybe a fictional character in this film. I strongly believe that you live in all of us in the real world. Yes, Hushpuppy, you are the man!
