Hey. Let me introduce to you HBO original tv show based on bestseller book written by Gillian Flynn called Sharp Objects. My roommate who read the book and watched the show before me was bugging me so much to watch it but I just have hard time starting new tv show. I just have to be in a mood to focus on something new otherwise I’ll end up watching same 3 tv shows again and again.
I finally sat down (well lied down) when I was sick and was too tired to do anything else and put on Sharp objects and oh my god.
It has only 8 around 60 minutes long episodes so I was done with it in just one day.
It’s so good! There are parts that are really slow and you think “well I’m gonna pull out my phone” but then few minutes later you just blink and miss out something important so you have to rewind back to catch it. The story is told in very interesting way that makes you watch next and next episode – freaking cliffhangers but that’s what’s making it so interesting.
I keep telling it all the time – tv show is good when I’m not on my phone while simultaneously watching it. Sharp object fits this description cuz I was totally consumed by it.
It’s a story about mentally ill reporter played by incredible Amy Adams who’s coming back to her hometown to write a report about young girls missing and dying eventually. We get to know her traumatic childhood in many great flashbacks.
I personally liked the mother in the story the most played by Patricia Clarks who has her own secrets and discovering them was mind-blowing for me. I don’t want to spoil you anything but let me tell you there are a lot of plot twists.
The whole show ends by one twisted sentence and leaves you a mess. Ending is different from the book one as in book it was explained a bit more (according to my roommate) but the show leaves it all to your imagination – meaning that even after you’re done with it you constantly think about how messed up that “spoiler thing that happened” was.
Incredible casting, stunning music and costumes, hard to swallow topics, controversial and nerve wrecking. Recommending!
Thank you for your attention
