Movie

The acting is terrific and the excitement and suspense of the plot are incredible.

I love a roller coaster of a good mystery and highly recommend this one.

Movie

Where the Crawdads Sing is based on the book by Delia Owens. It follows the life of a young woman,

Kya (Daisy Edgar-Jones) survives growing up in the marshlands of North Carolina by herself.

A major turning point in her life occurs when she becomes the prime suspect in a crime.

Edgar-Jones brings Kya’s character to life very powerfully. When we first see her, she is shy and reserved;

she rarely leaves the marshes. Kya enjoys the beauty of nature and loves drawing pictures of insects.

As a person who loves nature, I really appreciate the scenery in the film with the details of the water, grasses, and plants. It is beautiful.

Although the movie takes place in the 1960s, the attire is similar to what people wear today and seems realistic.

My favorite part of the film is the ending when the truth about the murder is revealed. My sister and I enjoyed discussing the outcome of the story.

There are so many possible outcomes, it is interesting to see the many different interpretations from other people. This will definitely be a conversation piece for me and my friends for a while.

Although Kya survived on her own and created a life for herself, she never had the opportunity to deal with her past and how it affects her life in the present.

You should be aware that there are some very suggestive sexual scenes in this film that make it unsuitable for younger children. I felt quite uncomfortable seeing those myself.

I give Where the Crawdads Sing 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 18 to adult.

At this point, mega-producer and book club maven Reese Witherspoon is well-versed in the art of book-to-screen adaptations.

After helping to shepherd cinematic versions of Gone GirlWild, and Big Little Lies, among others, she’s now produced the splashy, soapy Where the Crawdads Sing, which hit theaters on Friday.

Adapted from the best-selling novel by Delia Owens (who herself has been entangled in the investigation of a real-life killing),

the film follows the reclusive Kya, a woman forced to survive in the North Carolina marsh after being abandoned by her family.

Kya is brought to life by Daisy Edgar-Jones, fresh off her turns in Normal People and Under the Banner of Heaven.

Amid her unorthodox coming-of-age, Kya falls for two completely different men: the sensitive Tate (Taylor John Smith) and scheming Chase (Harris Dickinson).

The latter winds up dead near a deserted fire tower, and his jilted ex-girlfriend becomes the prime suspect.

Translating any beloved work is a tricky proposition, but screenwriter Lucy Alibar has said she often spoke to Owens about how best to adapt her characters.

“I knew I loved Delia immediately because she said, ‘Please don’t ruin the Southern accent—I hate that!’” Alibar told Vanity Fair in March.

“Delia trusted all of us to take her baby and put it out there in front of even more people.”

While ever faithful to its source material, the film version of Where the Crawdads Sing does diverge in a few places.

Here are four of the most pressing differences between the book and the movie, including a departure in Kya’s ending.

Kya’s Childhood

The section that gets the most chopping is Kya’s childhood, which takes up several chapters in the book but only about 20 minutes of the movie.

which led to Pa’s gambling addiction and alcoholism. The film doesn’t provide a reason for Pa’s abusive nature,

nor does it flesh out the close-knit bond Kya shares with her older brother Jodie (Will Brandon).

Kya’s arrest in the murder of Chase Andrews also happens far earlier in the movie,

which frames her childhood anecdotes as flashbacks told to her lawyer (David Strathairn) rather than its own segment.

Chase’s Engagement

When Tate leaves for college, his and Kya’s relationship (temporarily) ends, providing an opening for Barkley Cove’s most problematic bachelor.

Enter Chase Andrews, who romances Kya in secret while publicly referring to her as “the Marsh Girl” and talking about her in a sexually derogatory manner.

one of whom identifies herself as Pearl (Caroline Cole)—Chase’s fiancée.

Kya’s Literary Career

“I wasn’t aware that words could hold so much,” Kya says in both the book and movie after Tate teaches her to read.

In the months after becoming literate, Kya begins drawing and writing about the nature that surrounds her in the marsh.

Tate proves to be a wealth of knowledge for Kya.

the book version of Tate also explains to Kya what her period is. This scene is (mercifully?) missing from the movie adaptation.

The Ending

Don’t fret, book purists—the surprising twist ending of Crawdads,

However, the way that an advanced-age Tate discovers this revelation shifts. In the book, Tate discovers a poem written by Amanda Hamilton, the poet Kya often quotes, underneath their floorboards.

Titled “The Firefly,” the piece contains a metaphor about female fireflies killing

their mates and reads as a thinly veiled confession.

Tate also finds the shell necklace that Chase was wearing in the hours before his murder,

leading him to realize that Kya did commit the crime.

Of course, this means that Amanda Hamilton was a pseudonym that his now deceased wife used for her poetry.

The film takes Amanda Hamilton out of the equation. Instead, Tate finds a journal with sketches of himself, Kya, and Chase alongside the shell necklace taped to a page.

In both the book and movie Tate vows to keep Kya’s secret, disposing of the shell into a rising tide.
