Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival: ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’
We can hardly believe the Rehoboth Beach Independent Film Festival is celebrating its 15th anniversary. It seems like only yesterday when this fall favorite debuted. This year’s festival, Nov. 7-11, highlights movies from and about Italy. Film society director Sue Early is especially pleased to feature “Beasts of the Southern Wild,” an audience fave and winner at Sundance and Cannes. “Beasts” comes from the bayou, not the old country, and tells how 6-year-old Hushpuppy’s struggles with her father’s failing health, her flooding community and ancient Aurochs—the beasts unleashed by the flooding—teach her the true meaning of courage and love.
