’s latest miniseries “Sharp Objects” is a simmering murder mystery set in small-town Missouri and brought to life with a big-time cast of Hollywood creators.

“Sharp Objects” tells the unsettling story of a reporter, Camille Preaker, who is sent back to her small hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri when a brutal set of murders occurs. Camille is clearly haunted by a series of events which occurred in Wind Gap during her childhood, the full breadth of which becomes clear as the series continues.

As Camille navigates her hometown, Adams delivers a harrowing performance with her understated suppression of trauma, self-harm ideation, and complex relationship with the intersection of sex and violence.

Based on novel

Flynn’s debut novel, “Sharp Objects,” hit bookshelves in 2006. Since then, Flynn went on to publish two more books, “Dark Places” and “Gone Girl” — both of which have gotten the big-screen treatment. Flynn made her screenwriting debut on David Fincher’s “Gone Girl,” starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.

The movie, which hit theaters in 2014 to critical acclaim, earned her a Golden Globe nomination. However, “Dark Places” — the 2015 thriller with Charlize Theron — wasn’t as well received.

Flynn also co-wrote “Widows” with Steve McQueen, starring Viola Davis and opening in theaters later this year.

Like its “Big” counterpart, the show features a star-studded cast led by Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson, and Chris Messina. The series marks a reunion for Adams and Messina, who starred as a couple in the 2009 comedy-drama “Julie and Julia.”

In “Sharp Objects,” Adams plays a reporter who returns to her small hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.

Director of “Dallas Buyers Club” is also here!

Jean-Marc Vallee may be the man behind such Oscar fare as “Wild” and “Dallas Buyers Club,” but he also earned accolades for directing the first season of the widely praised “Big Little Lies” for last year, netting himself an Emmy for best director of a limited series along the way.

Vallee returns to to helm “Sharp Objects” and, as some critics have pointed out, the two series have more than a few things in common.

Must-see if you liked “Big Little Lies”

Despite tackling dark subject matters, “Big Little Lies” managed to be both comedic and sinister along the way, portraying the story of the unraveling relationships of moms in a California beach town. “Sharp Objects,” however, has a Southern Gothic tone with its Missouri setting.

As Variety’s Daniel D’Addario put it: “Its handling of truly twisted subject matter (in scripts by Marti Noxon and Flynn herself) is frank and unblinking, digging out insight about the most damaged of people and the harm they do to themselves and to others. With a cast led by Adams operating at the peak of her abilities, ‘Sharp Objects’ is dazzlingly itself, a show in thrall to the horror of its premise but one that finds nuance within unremitting darkness.”
