"Beasts of the Southern Wild," having conquered the hearts at the Sundance Film Festival (and winning the Grand Jury Prize), has wowed 'em internationally too.
The amazing surrealist drama, about a little girl (Quvenzhane Wallis) and her father (Dwight Henry) making life in the waterlogged Louisiana delta, took two top prizes at the Cannes Film Festival: The Camera d'Or, for best first feature, and the FIPRESCI Prize, given by international critics.
Director Benh Zeitlin's film was the only American movie to win an award at Cannes this year.
"Beasts of the Southern Wild" will unspool in the United States starting at the end of June. It will return to Utah theaters on July 20.
