HBO’s sharp objects is based on a novel of the same name by the New York Times bestselling author named Gillian Flynn. The first season consists of eight episodes and tells the story of Camille Preaker, a reporter who comes back to her small-town neighborhood to cover a series of murders which includes those of two preteen girls. As she pieces together the story of the two young girls and her past, it becomes apparent that she’s identifying with the victims. Sharp Objects stars Amy Adams in the lead with Chris Messina, Patricia Clarkson, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven.
