Where the Crawdads Sing, released in Cineworld cinemas this Friday, is a confluence of diverse and memorable female talent, on both sides of the camera. The movie is adapted from Delia Owens' bestselling novel, it stars Normal People's Daisy Edgar-Jones, it's produced by Reese Witherspoon, who has long championed Owens' book, Olivia Newman directs it and it's scripted by Lucy Alibar (Beasts of the Southern Wild).
That's quite the prestigious line-up for the eagerly anticipated drama, which takes place amidst the steamy and humid marshes of the North Carolina coastline. Edgar-Jones stars as Kya, the isolated 'marsh girl' who is implicated in a murder, and whose isolated lifestyle is probed and examined by her suspicious local community.
Go behind the scenes of the movie in the following video as Owens, Edgar-Jones and Newman talk about doing justice to the book, which has sold more than 10 million copies to date.
