Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012)

ImageDirector: Benh Zeitlin

Writers: Lucy Alibar & Benh Zeitlin

Really wonderful and original.  The score is fantastic and just the first five minutes a lot made my eyes tear up.  Just the combination of the visuals and music was so overwhelming to me.  Once it settles into the groove of the story though there is a really sweet, tender, and original story of growing up.  The lead actress is great and absolutely holds her own in a movie full of adults.  One of the best so far of 2012.
