Few months ago I read a book that became maybe the most beautiful book that I have read in my whole life: Where the Crawdads Sing.
I read the book while I was waiting for the movie to hit the theaters, and it made me even more excited for the film once I finished it.
What I was looking forward the most to see on big screen was the nature of Carolina, marsh and all the animals Kya (the main character) spent her lifetime observing.
I wasn’t disappointed at all and I can also say that, in my humble opinion, the movie was great.
I watched it with my husband (who didn’t read the book and even asked me if it was based on true events) and he liked it very much. Even the day after we watched it (aka today) he wanted to talk about it.
The only thing I felt little sorry about is how they didn’t include “Sneaky Fuckers” in the movie, because that was my favourite part of the book.
The cast was good although I have to admit I didn’t know anyone. The only actor that looked little familiar to me was the one who played Kya’s lawyer.
At this point you probably know that Taylor Swift recorded the main song from the movie, titled Carolina. The song fits perfectly for the atmosphere and the story itself. If you still haven’t had a chance to hear it, I suggest you to go and give it a try.
And of course, I do recommend this movie, but I have to stress out that this is more of a drama then a thriller like it was marketed as (at least in my country).
