Coming into this film, I was unaware of the ice caps melting and the futuristic setting, which disoriented me. I was intrigued by the idea of a six-year old child trying to survive a flood on her own (her father is a raging alcoholic). Still, nothing in this film made sense. Maybe if I lived on the bayou I would understand their culture, but it all seemed overly simplistic to me. The people appeared to be highly uneducated and completely unaware of the outside world. I also couldn’t understand all of the praise surrounding Wallis. She was good, but she was also playing a simple child her own age; I didn’t see much acting there. In my opinion, this film is a pass. I just didn’t see the value in it.
