This series is a brooding psychological drama. As a news reporter, Camille (Amy Adams) is assigned to research two killings of young girls in the small town where Camille grew up. That overriding plot arch is complicated by Camille's alcoholism and addiction to self inflicted pain. The source of Camille's emotional problems becomes apparent when we meet Camille's mother. There are murders to solve and emotionally troubled, disfunctional lives to sort out. The series doesn't stress actual physical gore and violence, although some is there. It's about destructive, internal feelings and why they came about.
A reporter confronts the psychological demons from her past when she returns to her hometown to cover a violent murder. Amy Adams, Eliza Scanlen & Patricia Clarkson all deserve Emmy and Golden Globe nominations! Would recommend book the book but if your not much of a reader and like to be shocked go ahead and pick this tv series up! HBO killed it with this limited series.
Being a HUGE Amy Adam's fan I HAD to get this series. I watched it on AMAZON and when I heard it was coming to Blu-Ray I was ecstatic and I have to say, ITS EVEN BETTER ON BLU-RAY. I pre-ordered it through Best Buy and it arrived 4 days before its release date, so I can NOT complain in the slightest.
