Competition: Win ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ *closed*

Following a theatrical opening to tremendous national and international acclaim, and winner of a multitude of prestigious awards including the coveted Sutherland Award at the BFI London Film Festival, Beasts of the Southern Wild (2012) set the world alight with its heart-tugging, emotionally-charged magic. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Benh Zeitlin’s magnificent tale, we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away to our valued readers, courtesy of the good people at UK distributor StudioCanal. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

In a forgotten, yet defiant bayou community cut off from the world by a sprawling levee, six-year-old Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) exists on the brink of orphanhood. Her mother long gone, and her father Wink (Dwight Henry) a wild-man on a perpetual spree, Hushpuppy is left to her own devices on an isolated compound filled with semi-feral animals. When a hundred year storm raises the waters around her town, her daddy is suddenly stricken with illness, and fierce pre-historic ‘aurochs’ awaken from their frozen graves to come charging across the planet, Hushpuppy sees the natural order of everything she holds dear collapsing around her.
