Fresh from a brief stay at a psych hospital, reporter Camille Preaker faces a troubling assignment: she must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. For years, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13 year old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed in her old bedroom in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victms - a bit too strongly. Dogged by her own demons, she must unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past if she wants to get the story - and survive this homecoming.Written by
Despite playing the alcoholic reporter Camille Preaker on "Sharp Objects," Amy Adams said the only time she actually drank while filming was to get in the proper headspace for her sex scene on the miniseries. See more »
Absolutely amazing mini series. There were times that I was confused by quick cuts to flashbacks and flashes of gruesome scenes and wondered if they'd ever make sense, but all the while I knew they would come together in the end. This was absolutely true. By the end of the series, all these loose ends were neatly tied into a present with a bow on top, and then the very last scene of the finale blew my mind. 100% would recommend watching!
