Beasts of the Southern Wild was this year's breakout independent movie, as favorite among the Flixist staff that have seen it, and also probably the longest review we have to date. In the light of the dark horse candidate's four Oscar nominations (Best Movie, Best Director, Best Actress and Best Adapted Screenplay) Fox Searchlight has decided to re-release the move in theaters beginning this weekend.
Beasts will be re-released on Friday, January 18th in Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas, Phoenix, Miami, Washington DC, New York City and Los Angeles. For showtimes check your local theaters or Fox Searchlight's website. If you haven't seen Beasts yet, it's totally worth catching, especially before the Oscars!
