Movie of the Day - BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD

  • By Oscar Insider

The anticipation is building as we approach Oscar Sunday. If you haven’t seen all of the films nominated for Best Picture, there’s still time. Want to know more about each movie before filling out your My Picks Ballot? We can help you.

Each day, we’ll take a deeper dive into the nine films nominated for Best Picture.

Based on the play by Lucy Alibar (Nominee: Best Adapted Screenplay), BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD tells the story of a lively little girl in a Louisiana swampland whose imagination and resourcefulness come into play when rising flood waters threaten the isolated area. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Director, and Best Actress in a leading role, this Sundance favorite is wildly imaginative and delightful.
