If you do nothing this weekend, at least head for the Palm Theatre in SLOTown to see, "Beasts of the Southern Wild." This fierce, funny, deeply moving story of an extraordinary young girl, Hush Puppy, coming to terms with her Louisiana delta-dwelling father and the community they live in, is a revelation -- a unique voice in a sea of movie-blah scripts, an indie-prod film made on a shoestring but with a powerfully clear vision and a story well worth showing. Don't miss it.
And if you're a fan of the cult-classic, "Rushmore," don't miss "Moonrise Kingdom," a deadpan comic cult-classic-to-be. Deliciously, wickedly funny but without a mean bone in it's filmic body. It's at the Underground Downtown Center 7, also in SLOTown.
