Movies don't often mix fantasy and reality - they're either flights of fancy, or gritty, dark and grave. There isn't a lot of room for overlap. Beasts Of The Southern Wild turns that notion entirely on its head. It's a movie brimming with imagination and magic, but also one that dares to take a close, hard look at loss, pain, death and change. What's even more amazing is that this ambitious, powerful enterprise rides almost entirely on the very capable shoulders of a five-year-old girl.
