Following follows the first and the only season.
Sharp Objects is a character driven miniseries created by Marti Noxon that depicts an emotionally challenged reporter whose current project or case has got her into revisiting her hometown and past that eventually spirals out series of dreadful events. It is rich in technical aspects like stunning background score, metaphorical cinematography, fine art designing and perfect editing. The camera work is something to look forward to as it is shot beautifully with amazing visuals that seeks viewers’ attention through it. The three dimensional characters, eerie resonance with practicality and its tendency to go mild with a shock-and-awe policy are the high points of the series. It’s finely detailed script and awareness of the surrounding offered to the characters which the makers uses it wisely, helps a lot for it to convey the message. As much as complex and mysterious the relationship is between the mother and the daughter, the chemistry that stands out is between Adams and Curry and the primary reason for that would be its fragility and the perspective that it depicts it with (all the conversation on the phone are beautifully written). The adaptation by Gillian Flynn; who also wrote the original novel, is smart and explicit if not gripping and the primary reason it keeps the audience tangled in its web is the awareness of the characteristics of the characters and the palpable tone offered to it. Jean-Marc Vallee; the director, is bang on his bucks on executing such a dark and fragile concept where he visits place with bold approach and unflinching argumentative revelations. The performance is utterly dependent on its protagonist Amy Adams that delivers the expected stellar performance and is supported decently by Patricia Clarkson and Chris Messina. Sharp Objects eradicates one’s usual judgements and mocks over misogyny on such a large scale that the audience writhes on the seat in awe of its excellence.
