I liked the movie. I read the book and saw the movie twice. I am from North Florida around the Panhandle. I know about the crawdads and the marshes. My granddaughter meet the guy that played the sheriff. She works and goes to school in Tallahassee. Wonderful movie.
Everything -- Loved the book and the movie.
Special, thoughtful film, the likes of which more are needed.
Loved the entire movie..highly recommend.. absolutely a must see film. 5 stars +++++
I have gone to the theater 6 times to see this movie and have it downloaded on my iPad
Great story, acting and amazing scenery. Just a great movie
good movie, kept my interest, but just kind of mediocre. Worth watching but nothing you will remember a year from now.
Total snoozefest - waste of money - low budget acting
Picked certain parts out of the book. movies of this calibar make me never want to see a movie again. waste of money and time. yawned quite a bit. now elvis- I would see twice. entertaining, insightful, artistic, historical-way to go!
Wonderful movie! I recommend to all!
Slow moving. Book was better. I'd wait for it to come out streaming.
The scenery in this movie was astounding and, for me, Made it worth seeing the movie just for that! I had read the book and the movie is slightly different, but I think completely captures the story. Most times, I prefer a book to a movie, but the cinematography of this movie really brought it to life for me. I would go to see it again tomorrow.

Having not read the book I was not already 'in the know' on the story so I loved it.
Loved the movie
Very good movie, loved the whole thing from beginning to end. Kept my interest the entire time.
wanted more of her younger years. her growing up was what the story was about
Suspenseful. Will go and watch again!!
Great movie... I recommend seeing this!
I plan to see it again!
Great plot, great acting, and a surprise ending. Everything you want in a movie. Loved it!!
It is just an excellent film.
Loved the movie. Acting was excellent, just nice to see a good movie
Awesome movie! It held my attention from the beginning to the very end, which had an unexpected surprise.
Loved the movie. Acting was excellent, just nice to see a good movie that held your attention evey minute. Would recommend. 👍👍👍👍👍
It was brilliant, actors and story alike! can see why the novel was on Ophras must read list. Can’t wait read the novel.
a real movie with real actors and not something generated by a computer
I thought I was going to see a musical, but it was okay.
It is a surprise they still can make a picture which gives audience something like real life story. No BS flying bullets without loading, no tattoos and acres of bare skin and still keeps adrenaline flowing and our emotions high. Believable very good acting and few of great acting performances, without thousands of extras and billions spend to shock us.. Exceptional, pleasant moving picture. Well done.
Followed book pretty closely, sad but empowering, beautiful scenery. Appreciated the fact there was no vulgar language.
Great acting and cinematography. Twist and turns more complicated than the book. There is two plausible who dunnit.
Acting O.K. Movie or story just O.K.
Plot twist to a cool ending!
I liked that it followed the book plot! There were a few things they left out or changed, but it didn't change the plot.
I liked the fact that it kept me interested all the way throughout the movie. Very good scenery and the pictures we’re not dark as some movies are. Nice story plot but a surprise at the end.
A good entertaining movie with a good plot and a nice ending. Partial nudity but no vulgar language which is a nice change. Nice twist at the end to make you go hmmmm.
Such a touching story with a bit of suspense. Beautiful scenery. A must see. More than once!
Lots of twist and turns. Well written movie.
The movie had a good plot line. This movie reminded of the good movies from the past. The end has a great twist. I will buy the dvd.
Saw this on 7/15 Surprise ending. Had me weepy. Interesting title, makes sense but not what you'd expect
Excellent movie! The little girl who HAD to learn to be strong! I was so moved as I watched and it stirred so many emotions! Great ending too! Afterwards, just had to buy the book. Getting ready to read it. And might even go see the movie again!
Great movie. It is worth seeing it twice. I like it better than Top Gun
It was great getting out and seeing a movie its been so long. And even better when it is a great mystery movie.
I haven't read the book - it's in my very high pile of to-reads. This was fantastic - the plot, the twists, the characters. I absolutely loved the ending.
My husband and I saw this movie and loved it!! Had some mystery and twist and turns. Excellent acting! Will buy this when it comes out on dvd.
Maybe would have been better to see the movie first and then read the book.
This movie is monotone all the way through and I found it very boring. What you see in the trailer is how it is in the movie, no ups and all downs.
Never cried so much watching a movie. And totally lost it when Taylor Swift sang Carolina over the credits. Going back to watch it during an entire day's showings.
