When i first saw this film many months ago in the theatre, i was so glad to experience something fresh on the big screen after seeing numerous comparatively stale and generic films in the weeks beforehand.
This movie was great and if you look to the budget of this movie, comparing to the others nominees it have to give a lot of credit to the director, this movie have a very young actress and she is incredible like the story. Hushpuppy: When it all goes quiet behind my eyes, I see everything that made me lying around in invisible pieces.
Hushpuppy: 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 Hushpuppy, and she live with her daddy in the Bathtub.
Fantastic score. Really made the movie. And Dwight Henry was fantastic! Disappointed that he didn't end up with any nominations, but he was great regardless and I'll always remember his performance.
