I think we can officially say “Beasts” is the little indie that could. First Sundance, then Cannes and now 4…count ’em…4 Oscar noms (Best Picture, Actress, Director and Adapted Screenplay). What a wonderful inspiration for an filmmaker coming up today.
So if you haven’t seen it or just wanna watch it again on the big screen, I have some good news. According to the LA Times, “Fox Searchlight will rerelease the film in about 70 theaters this weekend. “Beasts” will be shown in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, Miami and Washington, D.C., in addition to New York City and Los Angeles, where it will play at the Landmark 12 in Westwood.”
If it’s still not playing in your area, Hushpuppy and her friends from the Bathtub are also on DVD. BEAST IT, BEAST IT!
