    Really liked ‘Crawdads’. Different and refreshing, Esp. her love of Nature and how the study of it came to nourish HER life and story. The love story part was cute, if a bit predictable, but well done, well cast and well acted. And the locations were just GORGEOUS. Made me want to jump in the water WITH them! There was drama with the whole courtroom drama, and the lawyer, played by well-worn character actor (have to Imdb). His consummate performance and ‘local boy’ demeanor immediately just drew me IN! I even teared up a little at the end, which is Always a Surprise!
