Beasts Of The Southern Wild, a portrait of family life in the Bayou, is coming to DVD on December 4 and the Wall Street Journal‘s Speakeasy blog was lucky enough to get a peek at some deleted scenes from the film included on the DVD.

Beasts collected an absurd number of prizes everywhere from Cannes to Sundance and is absolutely worth seeing. Watch the clip below:
