On a delta in the Deep South, a community of misfits eke out an existence on a little island known as the Bathtub.
Benh Zeitlin's debut feature sees six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) struggling to make sense of the world in the unpredictable care of her father Wink (Dwight Henry). An almost grudging survival instinct preoccupy this odd pair - at least when Wink isn't off on a moonshine bender - with Hushpuppy constantly picking up the animals that share their lives.
When a torrential storm washes over the Bathtub, engulfing houses as well as some of the residents, Hushpuppy's feral sympathies conjure visions of melting ice caps, from which the long-extinct beasts of the film's title re-emerge to reclaim the planet.
Contains moderate threat, injury detail and potentially dangerous behaviour.
