where the crawdads sing spoiler……

I know a lot of people that were really pumped for this film that were fans of the book. It’s finally here. We’re going to talk about it. I need you in the comments down below. Did you enjoy it? Did it live up to the hype?

So a woman who raised herself in the marshes of the Deep South becomes a suspect in the murder of a man she was once involved with, directed by Olivia Newman. Then, like I said before, based on the beloved novel that does have a little bit of controversy surrounding it,

I don’t want to dive too deep into that, honestly. I just found out about it yesterday because I’m not too familiar with.This novel, I’m solely judging the film based on the film. That’s it. That’s all. And for those that want to take their family,

this is rated PG13 for sexual content and some violence, including a sexual assault. That is listed in the summary here. So it may actually be a bit too graphic.For some, a bit harder on the PG13 scale, although the rest of the film does feel like more of a family picture.

So an odd combination there. But let’s start with Daisy Edgar Jones. That’s who we should start with. That’s who plays our main character of Kayla. And let me tell you, without her as the lead, I don’t know how I would have felt about this movie.

She is compelling.She is amazing and we saw her earlier in the year in fresh, but this is her first. I leave her first big screen film of 2022, probably the one that people are going to watch and know her for because she not only takes this character and runs with her, does a spectacular job and I was always hooked thanks to her and that’s a testament to how good she is.

She’s not the only star in the film. You have some other rock solid performers there, Bill Kelly, Sterling Macer Junior who I thought, I mean that couple, they add such a nice sense of emotion and not in the movie all that much, right, but great emotion in the film. David Strathairn, who plays the the typical southern lawyer who’s going to fight.

For the person that he knows is innocent in this, what is that? What it’s like? That scene from the office, there’s been a moita that’s pretty good. But David Strathairn, it doesn’t matter if it’s the most dynamically written character.

He’s going to take the material and run with it, and he absolutely does that. You get the moments in.Court. It’s all based around a trial. This young girl known as essentially around town, the weirdo who’s lived in the marsh,

it’s the swamp creature. It’s a legend, and there are fake stories made-up tales surrounding her and no one really knows who she is other than a few individuals that she strikes up relationships with in the film and.Other than the murder itself in what happens in court and is she or is she not innocent and or guilty?

That’s a question that’s ongoing throughout the movie. But whenever we get a flashback or something building her up, more and more we’re showing those relationships that made her who she is today and when I say today.

I mean, some of this stuff happened years ago, even though there were moments. I’m like, oh, that happened a month before that. And they say it’s been a couple of years. And I’m like, but you look the same. There’s no difference.

Nothing has changed. Why? Look, I’m unfamiliar with the novel, clearly, but if I went in not knowing this was a movie based on a beloved novel, and then I watched it.They probably would have come out saying, I bet that was based on a beloved novel because it does feel like the type of movie that hits those novel beats, it also hits those made for TV movie Beats.

And that’s not a huge knock on the film, even though I I felt that multiple moments throughout, right? But it’s going to give you those.Moments where the emotions swell and the music rises and you do start to feel what it’s going for. But is it going for anything that we haven’t seen before? And the answer is no.

But does it have to? Maybe not. Right? I’m watching this movie, I’m seeing all of these cliches. You know exactly where it’s going. You know exactly what the romance is going to do, some of the side performances.

They’re not all that good, and because of that there is a lack of chemistry at points. The way that they handle multiple romances in the movie, I didn’t really feel much. I understand there’s one romance where you’re not supposed to feel much in terms of that chemistry, but even performance wise I’m like, ah, I mean.

You know, you know exactly what’s coming. There are some awkward lines and line delivery, but you are still in it because Kayla is such a compelling character, even though you know exactly where it’s going, especially if you’ve read the book.

But even then I was I was interested. And there are times throughout the movie I’m watching and even though it’s just kind of.Rotting along from plot point to plot point, going where it inevitably has to go, and the court cases while somewhat interesting, there’s nothing really there that keeps you overly compelled and on edge.

Everything is really quiet in this film, which can be a great thing sometimes, but in this case I was waiting on something to happen.And it inevitably never did. Now, I will say the ending of this film worked extremely well for me.

I feel as if they could have filled in the gaps because there were aspects of the story that we just never got. And I I don’t know, but it feels like I know that they were present in the book. If you’ve read it, please answer me, because I know there were things missing.

In this movie, and unfortunately I felt that when it came to the pacing and the pacing, it’s not the best. And honestly for a non book reader, it’s not a film you have to see in the theater. It feels like a really solid made for TV movie, a movie that you can turn on kind of pay attention to get caught up in the emotions of it all,

which I did towards the end.And you’re interested enough because the question lingers. What actually happened? Are they going to answer it? Are they not? And at one point you think the movie is not going to address everything that you need, but then it does.

And I’m like, yeah, I actually thought that was really well handled. And there were aspects of this movie that I liked, one of the biggest being the score. It sweeps you off your feet.When it needs to. It worked extremely well for me, brought out almost all of those emotions.

The visuals, they’re a little bit all over the place at times. Some of the cinematography was beautiful, but some of the scenes were really dark, like the shading was slightly off and I struggled seeing characters, faces.

And at the end of the day, before I give you my score, hey, I appreciate you for being here. Be sure to start.That discussion down below. If you want to support this channel, I appreciate it. Drop that thumbs up. While it doesn’t feel like a film built to see on the big screen and the plot points are predictable, there’s enough here to make book readers appreciate the effort.

Also, Daisy Edgar Jones elevates every moment she is on screen. This is a slight recommendation for me. I’m going to 60%.With my score, there’s enough here to satisfy what you’re going to see this film for. Do you get anymore out of it? Not necessarily, but that’s OK. Some movies are built to do what they do, and that’s what it does. Was that confusing? Probably.
