'Beasts of the Southern Wild' Interviews

This movie made a bunch of money on just 4 screens. A Sundance favorite from a first time filmmaker, it's totally gut-wrenching, haunting and expertly crafted storytelling. Check out my interview with the first time actors who star in the lead roles. The guy who plays the dad owned the bakery across the street from the auditions. CLICK HERE to watch the conversation.
