Where the Crawdads Sing

Where the Crawdads Sing ★★★½

I was actually a little worried going into this. I didn’t hear much, I never read the book, nor did I know what to expect. I mean I saw the trailer a while back and it wasn’t something that necessarily jumped at me so I sorta forgot about it. I like mysteries and I remembered the overall aesthetic it had, PLUS out of the 3 releases this week, it seemed like the one I’d most enjoy. Well for starters, I did enjoy it and the cinematography really shines here. That might’ve been my fav part about this. The story does take a while to build up, going between present and flashbacks but eventually, I did get sucked into this story. It may feel like nothing much is happening for a while, and that could lose some people, yet the last half did enough to bring it back for me. The final outcome was actually quite sweet and touching. My girl LOVED it too. I also overheard on my other side as soon as the credits rolled, a younger daughter say to her mom “why you always crying during movies” lol aw. The ending is good tho. 7.1/10👨🏻‍⚖️
