I didn't yet get to view Beasts of the Southern Wild, but I did see Winter's Bone. A movie that relates to [explores similar themes] family and community like this movie is the Bad News Bears. They were a bunch of outcasts that never got along. Yet they were all put on the same baseball team with a drunken coach. But, as others gave up on them winning any games they came together. They pulled together and worked together as a cummunity [sic] and team to get wins all the way up to the final game. They did what nobody expected they could do and shocked everyone that outcasts could do so much together, even the coach stopped drinking [if only momentarily, he rewards the team with beers after the big game].
