What's on at Watermans
From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of 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 actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.
A family driving across endless miles of rugged landscape navigates a long road trip. Dad's got a broken leg and a mood to match whilst Mum fusses over her two children and their pet dog. Their eldest son driving the car tries to concentrate on the road ahead whilst his younger energetic brother bursts into song, singing along to the radio. The chaotic claustrophobic atmosphere grows in Panah Panahi's thrilling debut feature and is a tender quirky, and laugh-out-loud funny film.
Inspired by one of the most loved British family films of all time, The Railway Children Return is an enchanting, heart-warming adventure for a new generation.
