Where the Crawdads Sing is all set for its India release on September 16.

Produced by Academy award-winning actor Reese Witherspoon, the movie that has garnered 96% positive reviews from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, will be screened across theatres in India by Sony Pictures Entertainment India in English on September 16.

The movie stars Golden Globe award-winning actor Daisy Edgar-Jones in the lead along with Taylor John Smith (Sharp Objects), Harris Dickinson (The King's Man), Michael Hyatt (The Wire), Sterling Macer Jr (Double Down) and Oscar nominee David Strathairn.

From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery-thriller-drama film, Where the Crawdads Sing, a 2018 novel by author Delia Owens.

The book has topped The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2019 and The New York Times Fiction Best Sellers of 2020 for a combined 32 non-consecutive weeks.

The story follows Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina.

For years, rumours of the "Marsh Girl" haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.

Reese Witherspoon, in an interview, said, "I now understand what I'm good at and what I'm not. My interests have grown stronger as I've gotten older. I truly believe that like-minded people working together for the greater good can affect real change in the world. I only believe this because of the friendships I've formed with extraordinary women over the last four years. Before that, I felt so lonely, and it was especially difficult for me because I felt like I was the only one having conversations in rooms in Hollywood."

Elaborating further, she added, "I realised that women were having the same conversations in a different boardroom or on a different set across town, and it was enormously reassuring to know that I wasn't pushing a rock up a hill. It's still a lot of work, but it feels more natural now that you're involved. And since then, the support created by this group of women has made me feel as if I have a chorus behind me."

Witherspoon has produced and starred in projects like The Morning Show for Apple, Little Fires Everywhere for Hulu and HBO’s Big Little Lies.
