The crab feast part of the film is especially remarkable, because it points to origin of the movie name. Wink (Dwight Henry) tells his daughter Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) to eat the crab like a beast, and the whole room starts chanting, "Beast it." She tears the crab in half, sucks out its insides, and — with her fists clenched and screaming — proudly stands on the table.
