This devastatingly moving story is so unique that it's hard to classify. Part edgy drama, part heart-wrenching fable, it's both a celebration of the power of the imagination and an indictment of the deep divide that separates the rich and the poor. What Parents Should Know:
Parents need to know that "Beasts of the Southern Wild" is a heart-wrenching fable that's so unique that it's hard to classify. It's a drama about an alcoholic father who means well but has few tools to convey his love to his spitfire 6-year-old daughter. It's a celebration of quirky friendships and the power of the imagination. It's an indictment of the deep divide that separates the rich and the poor. And much more. Expect some swearing. There's also lots of drinking, brutal depictions of abject poverty, an adult striking a child, and discussion about the death of a parent. —Common Sense Media
