It's a film so completely unique that it's hard to imagine how it was even made.The Guardian
One of the most magical and powerful films you will ever see, and an incredibly imaginative look at the impact of climate change.
Fearless six-year-old girl Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) lives with her hot-tempered father Wink in "the Bathtub" a fictitious southern bayou community on an island surrounded by rising waters. As Wink contracts a mysterious illness, a massive storm floods the community, which Hushpuppy vividly imagines is caused by the ice caps melting, which in turn has unleashed an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs. Desperate to save her ailing father and repair the structure of the world, this tiny hero is forced to learn how to survive unstoppable catastrophes of epic proportions.
