Why all the love for Beasts of the Southern Wild?

The latest movie I watched was Beasts Of The Southern Wild.  Don't be misled by stills like this, or reviews you may have read indicating it was a fairy tale. The movie is about  a young girl with the misfortune of being dependent on a poor father with mental problems.  They and their mentally unstable neighbors try to survive amidst flooding.  Nothing much happens, and what does happen, happens slowwwwly.  An unpleasant way to spend 90 minutes.  But maybe you'll derive more enjoyment if you look more fondly on hippie lifestyles.
