I gotta take care of mine.
Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in “the Bathtub,” a southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink’s tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe; for a time when he’s no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, nature flies out of whack—temperatures rise, and the ice caps melt, unleashing an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs. With the waters rising, the aurochs coming, and Wink’s health fading, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.

I was amazed by the amount of complete lack of interest I had of this movie. It is not often I see something this boring. Sorry. I know I am supposed to love it and think it's all inspiring but no. I didn't care one bit for any of the characters.

Quvenzhané acting on the blade breaks. What a talent! And besides I see many references, I appreciate the novelty, but somehow I did not feel the magic.
