WHERE THE
CRAWDADS SING (nr)

1 hour 33 minutes

 

 

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 lay within the marsh. Where the Crawdads Sing stars Daisy Edgar-Jones (Normal People) as “Kya Clark,” Taylor John Smith (Sharp Objects) as “Tate Walker,” Harris Dickinson (The King’s Man) as “Chase Andrews,” Michael Hyatt (Snowfall) as “Mabel,” Sterling Macer, Jr. (Double Down) as “Jumpin’,” and David Strathairn (Nomadland) as “Tom Milton.” Olivia Newman (First Match) directs the screenplay by Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild) based upon the novel by Delia Owens. The 3000 Pictures film is being produced by Reese Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter.

Read the Book; See the Movie By Marion Coleman

Where the Crawdads SingOne time only special screening with post-movie discussion
Sunday, July 24th at 2:00.

If you are like me, when Hollywood takes one of your favorite books and makes it into a movie, your mind begins to generate both excitement and concerns.  Are they going to honor the story that the author has put down on paper or are they going to create something that strays so far that it is unrecognizable? Who will they cast as the characters? How will they “get the feel” of the setting and the story that are a large part of making the book so successful?  In short, I always worry, “Are they going to screw it up?” And once I have seen that movie, more than anything, I want to find other folks who saw it, and see if the answers to their questions are the same as mine.

Well, now you can do just that. On Sunday, July 24th at 2:00 the Harbor Theater will hold a special ”Read the Book, See the Movie” screening of “Where the Crawdads Sing.” The show will include a post-viewing informal discussion session. Marion Coleman, Chair of the Special Events Committee of the Harbor Theater Board of Directors, will lead the audience as together we talk about what we think they got right and what we think they didn’t. And if it has been so long since you read the book that you need a refresher, gave it away, or have not read it, we are partnering with the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library who is ordering additional copies for you to check out. Please mark this special showing of “Crawdads” on your calendar, and let’s see how it feels to get the chance to really talk about the movie.
