"I see that I am a little piece of a big, big universe." Fox Searchlight has asked us to debut these two new photos from Sundance/Cannes sensation Beasts of the Southern Wild today, also marking the one-week to release point. Beasts, as it's lovingly called, opens in limited theaters next Wednesday, June 27th. The two photos feature the father-daughter duo in the film, Hushpuppy played by Quvenzhané Wallis, and her father Wink, played by Dwight Henry. If all goes well, expect to see this film get some awards action early next year. I've seen it twice and adore it. You can see even more on the official website. Photos below!
Here's the two photos debuted by FS.net. She does have a radio in the first one, it's more behind-the-scenes.
Waters gonna rise up, wild animals gonna rerun from the grave, and everything south of the levee is goin' under, in this tale of a six year old named Hushpuppy, who lives with her dad at the edge of the world. Following a cast of unknowns led by the amazing Quvenzhané Wallis, and featuring Dwight Henry as her father Wink, the film is directed by Benh Zeitlin from a script he wrote with Lucy Alibar. The film won the Grand Jury Prize: Dramatic at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival. Fox Searchlight is bringing Beasts of the Southern Wild to limited theaters this summer starting June 27th.
