Murder! HBO has set itself up to wrestle the cultural zeitgeist to the ground like it's a wild bull this summer by setting a release date for Flynn novel adaptation Sharp Objects. However, as with the likes of Westworld and Game of Thrones, Sharp Objects was simulcast on HBO in the U.S. and Sky Atlantic in the United Kingdom, meaning UK audiences could watch the miniseries's first episode at 2am BST. Then change the "Provider" (right under TV Listings) to your local provider.
Sharp Objects is the next crime thriller you're going to obsess over. These include HBO Now, DirecTV Now, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.
Early in her career, Amy Adams did a lot of work in television. and five Oscar nominations later, she's returning to it in a showcase role. Later, Camille acts as Curry intended and becomes determined "to put together a psychological puzzle from her past", according to the Mercury News. HBO officially greenlit the eight-episode miniseries in 2016, and it has begun airing on HBO.
Adams said she could connect with her role and that is one reason she agreed to to the show. Based on the first episode, it's clear she isn't the typical heroine. The assignment, which reunites Camille with her overbearing mother Adora, stepfather Alan Crellin and half-sister Amma, brings back traumatic childhood memories, including the death of Camille's younger sister Marian when both were schoolgirls.
Here's a preview for tonight.
