Patricia Clarkson Joins HBO’s Adaptation of Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn


According to Hollywood Reporter, Patricia Clarkson has been added in the cast of HBO’s adaptation of Sharp Objects by Gillian Flynn.

She will co-star along with Amy Adams in this eight-episode drama. You can know more about the synopsis of the show below:

Published in 2006, Sharp Objects centers on reporter Camille Preaker (Amy Adams) — fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital — who must return to her tiny hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, Camille finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.

Clarkson, who returns to HBO following her Emmy-winning turn in Six Feet Under, will play Adora Crellin, Camille’s mother, queen of Wind Gap’s highest society. She’s haunted by the untimely passing of Camille’s sister decades earlier, and her anxiety is manifested through an overbearing love and protection for her youngest, Amma (as yet uncast). The sudden return of her estranged daughter, Camille, provokes her subtle hostility that threatens Camille’s sobriety and sanity.
