The “Bathtub” is a geographic area physically separated from the ‘mainland’ of Louisiana by a levee. But the real separation is the type of lives the residents of the Bathtub actually live. This is the setting for Beasts of the Southern Wild, a film that has mythical creatures, tragedy, triumph and wonder. The residents don’t live luxuriously, but they manage to live large in spite of their humble abodes and lifestyles.
