I’m not going to lie but I checked the Rotten Tomatoes score of Widows (2018, directed and co-written by Steve McQueen) before I decided to watch it in theatres. As the title of the film suggests, Widows is about three women—or rather four—who recently lost their husbands. The main plot of the film revolves around the criminal activities that shape the lives of these characters.

In yet another episode of Sharp Objects, we see more character growth but no story.

This post for Sharp Objects “Cherry” contains minor spoilers.

In many ways, this show probably isn’t best suited for an audience member like me, as I’m impatient when it comes to dealing with a slow paced narrative. Sharp Objects, like many other HBO TV series, is good at keeping the audiences waiting.

It is Calhoun Day in Wind Gap, and the town people are invited to celebrate what seems like an offensive fictional holiday at Adora’s front yard. There isn’t any new development for the show’s mystery; but there is new character development for Camille and Amma.

This post for Sharp Objects “Ripe” contains spoilers, and spoiler discussion from the original novel by author Gillian Flynn.

Camille may have grown up in the small town of Wind Gap, but I’m glad to know she’s familiar with Kelly Clarkson. She says, “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger,” while talking on the phone with her editor Frank Curry. Well… or that line could just be a total coincidence and I might be reading too much into it.

There’s just some things in life that can’t be fixed; and sometimes it isn’t your fault.

I’ve been waiting for Sydney Sweeney (Alice) to make her official appearance on Sharp Objects. I don’t remember Alice as a character in the book; and I also can’t remember Camille’s time at the rehab centre being mentioned much. According to Refinery29, Alice plays a bigger role in the TV show than in the book and is a constant reminder to Camille.
