Has anyone else seen this movie? I just watched it and I'm pretty blown away.
Where the Crawdads Sing is a 2022 American mystery thriller drama film based on the 2018 novel of the same name by Delia Owens. It was directed by Olivia Newman from a screenplay by Lucy Alibar, and was produced by Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.
The story follows an abandoned yet defiant girl, Kya, who raises herself to adulthood in a North Carolina marshland, becoming a naturalist in the process. When the town's hotshot is found dead, she is the prime suspect and tried for murder.
I was hesitant to watch it at first because there was a warning about sexual violence, but (perhaps because it was directed by a woman) that part of the movie was brief and was not fetishized, so to speak.
I would consider it a feminist movie. Does anyone else have any thoughts on it?
