The marsh in Delia Owens’ Where the Crawdads Sing is more than just a setting for the murder mystery story – it has its own personality. Owens wants her readers to be as fascinated by the surroundings as her protagonist Kya is: This is not a swamp or a marsh, she writes. In March, grass grows in water and water rushes up towards the sky. ” In the midst of a thousand snow geese’s screams, “long-legged birds ascend with startling grace—as though they were not intended to fly—against the whir of the creeks”
Kya, a marsh inhabitant in Where the Crawdads Sing’s new film adaption, needed to be portrayed in all of her glory and majesty. Once on location, the film’s creative team, including director Olivia Newman, producer Reese Witherspoon, and production designer Sue Chan, worked tirelessly (and in spite of inclement weather) to reproduce the look and feel of the 1960s small-town North Carolina. Whenever in doubt, they turned to Owens’ novel as a source of information.
In Which Location Did Where the Crawdads Sing Get Its Start?
The filming location for Where the Crawdads Sing was not in North Carolina, but rather in the marshlands of New Orleans’ North Shore and the nearby town of Houma. From April through July of 2021, Vanity Fair reports that the film was shot in New Orleans due to thunderstorms, flooding, and heat. Cast and crew were attacked by mosquitoes that live in Louisiana’s swamps. Newman said, “There was also something miraculous in it, because that’s also Kya’s tale…. Because this is a story of a young woman learning to live with the circumstances of her environment, it helped us feel more connected to the content.
How Does the Where the Crawdads Sing Movie Conclude?
There aren’t any major, dramatic alterations to the ending of Where the Crawdads Sing, which means fans won’t be upset. Even though the movie cuts corners to save time in court, the proceedings nonetheless proceed in the same manner. Similar to the novel, Kya and Tate achieve happiness together and pursue a successful nature writing profession as depicted.
The film does not contain Kya’s alternate life as a poet or discuss her connection to poetry in any way. Instead, the film focuses on her artistic talents as she illustrates the local flora and fauna on location in the marsh. There are no poems describing what happened when Tate realizes that Kya killed Chase. He just finds his necklace, and the rest of the story is up to his imagination.
