Where to watch Sharp Objects online in Australia
This new HBO limited series benefits from an impressive cast, clever writing and a balanced dose of thrills and melodrama.
Sharp Objects, based on the book of the same name by Gillian Flynn, follows reporter Camille as she returns to her hometown after just being discharged from a mental institution. Struggling with some demons of her own, she is assigned to cover a story involving the murder of young girls, and as a result, she has to finally confront her past under the watchful eye of her mother, Adora.
The series is part mystery, part character study, and it is overall very gripping and addictive. It’s more of a slow burn, so you’ll have to arm yourself with some patience when binge-watching this one.
The impressive cast features Amy Adams, Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Sophia Lillis and Australian actor Eliza Scanlen in a breakout role. Sharp Objects is already generating tons of hype and gathering positive reviews from critics, so you’ll be in for a treat. It’s pretty clear that HBO has another hit on their hands. You won’t want to miss out on this one.
