Very few films from this year’s film festival slate has hit people as hard as the debut feature film from director Benh Zeitlin, Beasts Of The Southern Wild.
With a huge push coming out of Sundance earlier this year, the film made waves at Cannes as well, and an awards push from its distributor Fox Searchlight appears to be on the horizon, for the film, its director as well as the film’s star, Quvenzhane Wallis.
A new clip for the film has arrived, in anticipation of its June 27 release date, and it’s quite a stunner. The film follows a young girl who lives with her father, and as a person who hasn’t seen it yet, that’s all this writer knows about the project. I’ve stayed pretty blind with regards to this film, but based on this clip, it looks like something unlike anything I’ve seen this year. The buzz behind the project has been palpable, and it’s not all that shocking now based on this sequence.
