Based on the debut novel of the same name by writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl), Sharp Objects is the story of reporter Camille Preaker, who returns to her small hometown to investigate mysterious, unsolved crimes. Two girls are missing, one of whom was found dead and presumed murdered. As she searches for clues, Camille reunites with her estranged family – including overbearing mother Adora and half-sister Amma -- which rekindles traumatic childhood memories, including the death of her younger sister. Piecing together a psychological puzzle from her past, Camille begins to identify with the young victims a bit too closely.
“It's in the writing and the performances where Sharp Objects excels - this is a tantalising, confident show with a strong female voice, even if that voice sometimes belongs to monsters. – News.com.au
“The mystery is good ... but the tone, sense of mood and general style is even better.” – ABC Radio (Australia)
“The series invites us in with promises of lurid murders and swaggering self-destruction, and then gives us instead an in-depth portrait of a woman — traumas, chip on her shoulder, and all — and insists that we head home with her... and understand what makes her tick.” – Buzzfeed News
Starring Amy Adams (American Hustle), Patricia Clarkson (House of Cards), Chris Messina (The Mindy Project) and Elizabeth Perkins (Weeds)
