This debuted a week ago Sunday; anyone watching it? I only saw the first ep and am looking forward to watching the second one tonight.
As usual, I won’t ramble too much until I know if anyone else is interested but I will say I think it’s really good so far.
For anyone not familiar, it’s based on a book by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Dark Places)and directed by Jean-Marc Vallee (Big Little Lies), and stars the lovely Amy Adams and the formidable Patricia Clarkson. It’s about a woman who works as a reporter and goes to the home town she left right after high school to do a story on child disappearance / murders. Much closet dwelling skeleton escape ensues. Patricia Clarkson as the socialite dotty and delicate family matriarch is DELICIOUS.
There are so many details and so much nuance, after watching it once I went back to watch again and stop / rewind because I kept thinking “did I just see what I thought I just saw?” The soundtrack could not be better, especially the song that plays over the closing credits (or at least ep 1’s).
I know not everyone has HBO - I signed up for a trial month and may or may not keep it for an extra month so I can finish the the series- but hopefully some of you will tune in soon.
