(Article) – Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson Aren’t Afraid to Tackle Big Topics

(Article) – Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson Aren’t Afraid to Tackle Big Topics

Last month HBO launched the promotional tour for Sharp Objects with an interview to The Wall Street Journal magazine given by Gillian Flynn, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson.

“Don’t they look related?” says author Gillian Flynn, glancing at Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, who raise their eyebrows quizzically. The pair play mother and daughter in Sharp Objects, the much-anticipated HBO adaptation of Flynn’s 2006 debut novel, but the suggestion that they resemble their characters makes the actresses understandably uneasy.

Even for those who know Adams’s dramatic range, her portrayal of Camille Preaker is a departure. The darkest, most complex character in a career that has earned Adams, 43, five Oscar nominations, Camille is a newspaper reporter who has written her own story on her body, carving words into her skin. Since being institutionalized, she’s tried to drown her cutting addiction with alcohol. Meanwhile, as Camille’s mother, Adora, Clarkson, 58, relishes withholding affection from her firstborn even as she smothers Camille’s teenage half-sister, Amma, with attention.

When Camille returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri, to investigate the murder of a young girl, she is forced to confront her past and her grief over the death years before of her younger sister, Marian. She and Adora, who presides over the town with emotionless elegance, share a sense of loss, but little else.

The withering mother-daughter dynamic is the brainchild of Flynn. The 47-year-old author—who penned the screenplay for David Fincher’s 2014 adaptation of her novel Gone Girl—wrote this eight-episode series, which airs starting in July. She and Adams also served on the project as executive producers, a first for each of them. The project was spearheaded by women, including Marti Noxon, a Mad Men veteran who co-wrote and was showrunner; and Jessica Rhoades, then a television executive at Blumhouse (the production company that also released Whiplash and Get Out). Jean-Marc Vallée, fresh off the success of HBO’s Big Little Lies, directed the five-month shoot, with long days on set in Northern California, Los Angeles and the 100-degree heat of Georgia—especially grueling for Adams, who was covered with prosthetic scars from the neck down.

Amy Adams Fan turns 10!

Amy Adams Fan turns 10!

Ten years ago the very first version of Amy Adams Fan came online, built by fellow (and now missed) Riikka and Mycah and designed by my favourite Frederik. Back then, Amy was already a fan favourite due Enchanted and some of her critical claimed projects as Doubt, Sunshine Cleaning and Julie & Julia was still awaiting release.

I came on board of the website two years later (2010) and have been enjoying the ride since then. It’s being a pleasure to follow Amy’s career (and to scream over Academy every year due their lack of judgement), and I want to thank you all, visitors from website and twitter, for the support over the years. It wouldn’t be as fun without you guys!

To celebrate, there’s a new layout up (since the weekend, because I’m not the waiting type of person), which I hope you guys have enjoyed. Let’s now prepare for more years ahead!

Amy Adams to star in “The Woman In The Window”

Amy Adams to star in “The Woman In The Window”

Amy Adams is attached to star in The Woman in The Window, a Hitchcockian thriller directed by Joe Wright, Empire is reporting.

The movie is an adaptation of AJ Finn’s bestseller, that follows Dr. Anna Fox (Adams), who spends her time hiding away in her New York home, drinking too much, watching old movies and spying on her neighbours.

But when she starts focusing on the seemingly perfect Russell family across the way, she witnesses something she shouldn’t have. Which is when things get dangerous…

‘Sharp Objects’ Teaser Trailer

‘Sharp Objects’ Teaser Trailer

HBO’s Amy Adams-starring miniseries Sharp Objects is set to be released this July and last night, during the premiere of WestWorld second season, a teaser trailer has been released.

Based on the novel by Gone Girl author Gillian Flynn, Sharp Objects stars Adams as Camille Preaker, a reporter who returns to her hometown of Wind Gap, Missouri to investigate a gruesome double murder. But she’s fresh out of a mental hospital herself, and her half-sister Amma seems to think Camille might be having visions of the undead. As the local police chief warns Camille’s mother about her daughters, “one of them is dangerous, and the other one’s in danger.”

The supporting cast is stacked, with Six Feet Under‘s Patricia Clarkson as Camille’s mom and Mindy Project alum Chris Messina as a local detective. Plus, Big Little Lies fans, take note: Director Jean-Marc Vallée, who won an Emmy for helming BLL, is behind the camera here.

It is Emmy winner that we call it?

Amy Adams in 2017: A Year in Review

Amy Adams in 2017: A Year in Review

2017 is coming to its end and then I decided to put together, once again, a summary of Amy’s professional activities this year.

We started with Amy collecting the accolades for the amazing year she had in 2016 with Arrival and Nocturnal Animals.

The first event she attended was in January 3rd. She stepped out at the 2017 Palm Springs International Awards Gala, to receive the Chairman’s Award for her work in Arrival. Two days later, she attended the National Board of Review, again as winner. On the next day, she attended a W Magazine celebration for the Best Performances Portfolio which she was included. Again, the day next, she attended the AFI Awards Gala.

The awards season got busy, with Amy attending the Golden Globes, BAFTA Awards, SAG Awards, Directors Guild, Producers Guild… Amy was nominated in the every single awards BUT the Academy’s, which still infuriates me. This didn’t prevent her to attend, and presenting the Best Adapted Screenplay to Moonlight director Barry Jenkins.

Before the Academy unveiling their nominees, Amy was still promoting the movie. She visited Jimmy Kimmel and attended a Q&A at the SAG-Aftra Foundation, while kept doing interviews to several outlets.
