If you enjoyed the movie "Beasts of the Southern Wild" as much as I did, then the (very brief) play on which it is based will appeal greatly to you. It is about a little boy, not a little girl, and the plot structure is very different. But it will increase your enjoyment of the film to see the transitions that the movie people made (including the play's author) to get the story into film. The movie has been much honored. It is interesting to see its beginnings.

Juicy and Delicious was a terrific read about the bayou and families living there in poor conditions but helping each other anyway.

This was a touching and wonderfully told story of a child trying to survive the death of a parent. I'd love to see it on stage.

I was really excited to read this after seeing the movie. I really liked the movie, I feel like it let us into an entire different culture within a culture. It gave reason for choices that may not make sense and maybe even viewed as crazy or dangerous to me or most people, but made it seem believable as to why that was the only conclusion for these characters by brilliantly weeving in the spheres of society to show what the people believed about life.... But the play did not do that for me. It left me a bit depressed and confused. Maybe I don't have enough artistic genius, or maybe it really is just a bit weird and unexplainable. I didn't feel things were explained well through relationship at all. It was almost like the writer was trying too hard to be artsy and different. But see that's the thing about reviewing a play, one person can see something in such a different light than another, so this is not tearing down the writer, because I believe she could direct it very well, it just doesn't work for highschool students as well as I had hoped it would. Although I can envision some beautiful stage imagery, just wish their was more juiciness in the dialog to go with the beautiful imagery... Like in the movie script. Oh and the main thing I liked about the movie, the culture of the people in the flood area, was not evident to me in the play.... I feel the flood brought the whole story line together in the movie, even the imaginable bits like the aurochs, didn't get that from the play... Maybe I'll need to read it again now that I watched the movie again... But I'm pretty sure my opinion will stay the same. I think if the play had more of the monologues and explanations the movie did, it would work beautifully.

Having seen "Beasts of the Southern Wild" three times and loving it more with each viewing, I just could not 'get' this play. I have tried to re-read it, but it loses me, or i lose it. anyway, the author is redeemed, in my estimation, with the script for the movie, which is magnificent. once you have seen the movie, i believe it makes reading the play more difficult. SEE THE MOVIE!!!

There is a lot of symbolism that I don't understand. I need to read it a few more times, at least, to hopefully dissect and find meaning. This play is not for the feint of heart.

Charming, funny, heartbreaking, teaching me about a part of America, around the time of Hurricaine Katrina, I thought was covered by the media in detail. Clearly, however, I realized after reading this book, the media nearly ignored this part of the country and these people. What a genius this child seems to be - Hushpuppy saves himself and others with love and quick thinking in circumstances the average person cannot imagine. Yet even eating animal food, heating it first to make sure it tastes better, makes a sad kind of sense when the alternative is starvation. I will never forget him - he made me remember the little girl version from the film even more touching; somehow I saw that gender didn't matter. The theme from the film, "Once There Was a Hushpuppy," kept playing in my head as I read the book, so that for once I didn't mind that I'd seen the film before reading the book.

looking for some insight into movie but found the play was far too disjointed and hard to visualize on a stage. hard to see the movie resulting from this.
