Trivia

In the scene where Camille meets Amma in their house, she is invited to see Amma's doll house. As the camera rests on the doll house, on the second floor is a picture frame on a wall. The words "GIRL" is visible on the frame for a split second and when the camera refocuses again in that area of the doll house, the words disappear. This could possibly be a hint to describe "gone girl" which was another Gillian Flynn novel. See more »

Goofs

Bob Nash refers to driving from his place of employment in Hayti, MO (pronounced HAY-tie). But the actor pronounces it as HAY-tee (like the country). See more »

Sharp Objects Vanish Review: A Dark, Unique, Slow-Moving Drama
20 August 2018 | by ashboomstick-50540See all my reviews

The first episode of Sharp Objects does a decent job at introducing all of the central characters, while setting up the tone of the show. However, this all happens at a very slow pace, making the average viwer wonder how long this slow pace will continue. The shows cast is phenomenal, all of them top-notch, really. The cinematography is intriguing, a breath of fresh air, in the all but too mundane world of cinematography. The direction of the show seems to be in good hands, considering the director, Jean Marc Vallee's phenomenal work on Big Little Lies. The main problems with the show so far involve the fact that the show is so incredibly slow for huge chunks of time. Also none of the characters are particularly likeable, although that is sure to change. Sharp Objects certainly has promise as a show, and parts of the plot are certainly incredibly original, which is refreshing. Episode One: Vanish= 85% -10 points taken off for slow pace -5 points taken off for bad sound, and annoying characters
