"Sharp Objects" stars Amy Adams as Camille Preaker, a crime reporter recovering from a recent stint at a psychiatric center. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely. She returns to her hometown to investigate the murder of two young girls.
The book spent more than 70 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, won two of Britain's Dagger Awards and was shortlisted for an Edgar Award. Her mother throws a dish towel with gusto and serves very dramatic face at a funeral.
The cast of HBO's Sharp Objects also includes Patricia Clarkson (House of Cards, the Maze Runner films), Chris Messina (The Mindy Project), Eliza Scanlen (Home and Away), Elizabeth Perkins (This Is Us), and Matt Craven (NCIS: Naval Criminal Investigative Service ). It's a horror-filled homecoming, one Camille may not survive.
Sharp Objects will make its screening debut at the ATX Television Festival on the 7 of June in Austin, Texas. This series is definitely going to fill the Big Little Lies hole in your heart this summer. While Lies had plenty of dark subject matter, there was a cheeky, comical side to the show that doesn't look to be present in Sharp Objects at all. The new series is based off Gillian Flynn's 2006 best-selling novel of the same name.
Cuba swears in Miguel Diaz-Canel to replace Castro as president
Raul Castro , the previous president of Cuba , assumed his post in 2008 after a transitional period that lasted for two years. The Candidacy Commission also nominated another six vice leaders of the Council of State, Cuba's highest government body.
The Gone Girl vibes in this series aren't coincidental.
Flynn, author of the best-selling Gone Girl and mystery thriller Dark Places, has a penchant for exploring the tragic tales of loathsome, challenging - on the surface, at least - women in her stories.
The first episode of Sharp Objects will premiere on HBO sometime in July.
