Where the Crawdads Sing

Where the Crawdads Sing ★★

4/10

The film is way too long which often killed the pacing. It just keeps going and going. It’s taking it’s time to develop its characters but at the same time I don’t feel like I’m really learning anything about them. It’s just dead air for the most part. Often dips into melodrama territory far more than I would’ve preferred. The whole movie just feels too clean and polished. With that fake studio sheen over it. Daisy Edgar-Jones is solid in the lead role though. The film ended just as it was getting interesting too. I think the end product was just kind of a mess. Overall, this didn’t do much for me. About halfway through I forgot which of her boyfriends was the murdered one.
