April 6th 2023 7.30pm – Where the Crawdads Sing
A very beautiful, touching and powerful movie. The scenes of the Marsh areas and beaches were beautifully caught, really emphasizing how vast and free it all is. The story itself was throat catching, I found myself nearlly crying for Kya, it really plays into the whole ‘judging a book by it’s cover’. it at first was sad watching a little girl having to survive her father, to surviving on her own, waiting in the Marsh area for her family to one day return.

One of Benedict Cumberbatch’s best performance to date, which makes it one of the
greatest acting performances period. His startling physical transformations,
spot-on dialogue delivery, and appropriately subtle and highly-effective character manifestations (he’s a spy not a Hollywood super-hero for those hung up on the film not emulating Bond or Bourne “big moment” scenes), are all testimony to his commitment to the acting craft.
