Put Sharp Objects in Your Beach Bag: The Series Starring Amy Adams Premieres on July 8th #book2movie

Amy Adams in Sharp Objects

It’s official. Sharp Objects will be your summer binge. HBO just announced the series starring Amy Adams will make its debut on July 8th at 9pm.

Based on the book by Gone Girl author, Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects is the story of reporter Camille Preaker (Adams) who goes back to her hometown to report on the murders of two young girls. Camille, as though of you who’ve read the novel, is quite a flawed main character.

I took a quick look back at my review from 9/6/2016 where I noted she makes a lot of “self-sabotaging choices that mess up her head and her life.’’

And, this ...
“Again, as in Gone Girl, the ending wasn’t what I was expecting or wanting. I finished the book feeling slightly unsatisfied but you know what they “you don't always get what you want but if you try sometimes you might find, you get what you need.’’

The 8-episode series also stars Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Patricia Clarkson, Elizabeth Perkins, Matt Craven, Henry Czerny, Taylor John Smith, Sophia Lillis and Madison Davenport. 

Directed by Big Little Lie’s Jean-Marc Vallée from scripts by Marti Noxon and Gillian Flynn, I’m looking forward to it. I may have to give the novel a quick re-read. Have you read Sharp Objects? With summer around the corner, I’m predicting it will be making its appearance in a lot of beach bags.
