In an otherwise crummy week, Peter Travers looks towards the one beacon of hope in theaters this weekend: Beasts of the Southern Wild, a film about a six-year-old girl named Hushpuppy living in a post-Katrina Louisiana Bayou with her abusive father. "It gets a little magic realism," says Travers, drawing a comparison to Terrence Mallick's Tree of Life, but adds, "you are seeing things that make you excited about movies again."
