A hauntingly beautiful book brought to life on the big screen, Where The Crawdads Sing is in theaters now. This book left me with a pit in my stomach and the movie did this story justice. It was beautifully shot and the storytelling was pure magic.
Interview with Director Olivia Newman
About The Song ” Carolina”
“Taylor Swift writing a song for the film based on these characters was the greatest gift that we could have received,” says film producer Reese Witherspoon. “We got a call from Taylor and her team to tell us she had written a song, ‘Carolina,’ that incorporates so many of the haunting elements of the movie. I’ve gotten to talk with her a couple of times about what inspired the song and how she wrote it. Obviously, she’s a beautiful songwriter who understands so much about folk and country music, and it’s her appreciation of those genres that made the song so perfect for this film. And who doesn’t love a gorgeous, haunting Taylor Swift song?”
