HBO presents Sharp Objects!
HBO's latest eight-episode #SharpObjects is adaptation of Gillian Flynn's 2006 debut novel. The show centers around a complex tale of family trauma in a small town.
Amy Adams plays Camille Preaker, a reporter who reluctantly returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Mo., to investigate the murder of a young girl and the disappearance of another. Without anywhere else to stay in the place she was glad to leave behind, she lands at the home of her mother Adora (Patricia Clarkson). Adora lives with her husband Alan (Henry Czerny) and her 15-year-old daughter Amma (Eliza Scanlen), who is Camille's half-sister. The family is haunted by the death, many years earlier, of Camille's sister Marian, and Camille has spent years fighting awful internal battles in the wake of that tragedy. One of them is a compulsion toward physical self-harm that, at least in part, gives the story its title.
