Are you slowly losing sight of all horizontal and vertical series on Netflix, Amazon, Sky and on free TV? Or are you just looking for good TV, maybe even want to do well-groomed binge-watching? In our column "Hildegard von Binge" We discuss most interesting restarts of month.
When US writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) wrote sharp objects 12 years ago, no one wanted to publish her novel first. Who wants a heroine that deals damage to oneself and ors? Only now, or right now, is it just stories like this that Hollywood wants to tell. The new eight-part HBO crime series by Showrunnerin Marti Noxon (dietary), directed by great Jean-Marc Vallée (Big Little Lies), looks deep and artfully into female abysses.
The story follows Camille Preaker (Amy Adams), a reporter who is sent back to her hometown at sournmost tip of Missouri to tell about murder of one, possibly two girls. She carves words into flesh and kills her worries with vodka, which she carries in water bottles filled with. No wonder with a dead sister, a passive-aggressive mor (Patricia Clarkson) and a 13-year-old half-sister (Eliza Scanlen) with Lolita Complex.
Sharp objects draws a sinister, atmospheric universe in which psychological violence, gender roles and small town intrigues are mixed in an explosive way. (Marietta Rock)
