Beasts of the Southern Wild

Benh Zeitlin's debut feature Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012; 3:30 + 7:30 pm) raised some eyebrows by scoring Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Director, Actress, and Screenplay. Eagle-Tribune film critic Greg Vellante will explain the appeal of this sui generis, magical-realist tale of moonshine, squalid poverty, childhood innocence, and environmental disaster as it opens the Brattle Theatre's "(Some of) The Best of 2012" series. Greg will also stick around to talk up another film about the bitter enchantment of growing up, Wes Anderson's Moonrise Kingdom (2012; 5:30 + 9:30 pm).
