Metascore®Universal acclaim Based on a weighted average of all critic review scores.
A sample of reviews from critics across the country.
The movie is small, local, and idiosyncratic. Then again, it's also a thing of beauty and originality - and for that, sustained huzzahs are in order.

There's no trace of calculation, only artistic ambitions and hopes that have come to fruition in the year's finest film thus far.
It's very much an art piece, to be sure, but it feels like a genuine one that, while meditated, speaks fluently and truly for the place, people and culture it so indelibly depicts.
It's unlikely there will be a film as visually stunning or poetic this year - or perhaps any year - to rival Beasts of the Southern Wild.
