SYNOPSIS
From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lie within the marsh.

I usually watch Toronto TV (CTV), and they had a review recently of this movie. The review was not very good, but ended on a note of puzzlement. One young announcer turned to the young reviewer, and both agreed that the most unsatisfying thing about the flick was they never told what a "crawdad" was, They said they would have to do an internet search.

The movie has been getting a lot of television interview promotion lately -- especially for the fact that Reese Witherspoon is producing it. Apparently, the book that the film is based on has been extremely popular. I was looking forward to seeing this at some point (the trailer looked interesting), but disheartened that it fell to less-than-stellar reviews.

Pretty much, every woman I know has read the book, this includes my wife and her mother, my mother, all of my wife's female friends, and obviously lots of other people. My wife was so into it on a long drive she insisted I listen to the audiobook version. I did not finish it but thought it was a pretty good story in terms of what I did hear. I did not even know it was made into a film until just the other day. Has this made it into cinemas as I am kind of surprised it already has a Blu coming?

I figured this would make for a pretty popular film due to how many people seemed to be raving about it. It is a mystery and the novel did build some great atmosphere which I thought would make for a good film.

It has a 36% from critics and 96% from audience on RT. I find I often enjoy movies with that combination.

They tend to be simple, heartfelt dramas.

I’m sorry, but if you are presenting yourself as a spokesperson for a news program, or a movie reviewer, and you don’t know what a simple noun like Crawdad means, AND you don’t do any research, you are just a twit and should not expect any respect.

Well, idiots abound in film criticism. I can't count the times I've seen complaints of "What am I supposed to think?" regarding the theme of a movie. Not everything is spoon-fed and simple-minded, or should it be. If a movie requires some effort and thought from the viewer, that doesn't mean the movie is "stupid" or poorly written.

I can't forget one of the most idiotic comments I've ever heard, from a highly visible "critic" regarding the animated movie "9". The angry comment was "Animated movies aren't supposed to be this dark!" This was one of the most published critics in the US, and showed him as nothing but a complete idiot.

They sing when you put them in a pot to boil. Just as a lobster.

This critic has clearly never seen Grave of the Fireflies. :unsure:

I have been seeing advertisements for the film (that is the subject of the thread), and they have been pretty effective for me in terms of generating some interest. Looking at the director's credits, they are fairly limited and mostly television; but everyone has to start somewhere. I may have to give this a try.

I believe it was AO Scott but it could have been Richard Roper. It was definitely on At The Movies.

The September 2009 release indicates it was Scott.

Saw it on Friday night and that is pretty much a perfect description of what it is.
