Wallis hasn't had too much of a career after Beasts, she starred in the stinker Annie and the gut-wrenching 12 years a slave, which I don't even remember her role in.
Rookie director Benh Zeitlin chooses a somewhat unconventional approach to the film, with a mostly raw and down-to-earth approach to filming that fits the "crudeness" of the life in this community.
I have heard the argument that it's foolish to be bothered by such inaccuracies because the movie is from Hushpuppie's perspective, but when I think of better movies that show a world from a child's eyes, that naivety does not extend to how its adults experience it.
