Did You Know?


In the scene where Camille meets Amma in their house, she is invited to see Amma's doll house. As the camera rests on the doll house, on the second floor is a picture frame on a wall. The words "GIRL" is visible on the frame for a split second and when the camera refocuses again in that area of the doll house, the words disappear. This could possibly be a hint to describe "gone girl" which was another Gillian Flynn novel. See more »


Bob Nash refers to driving from his place of employment in Hayti, MO (pronounced HAY-tie). But the actor pronounces it as HAY-tee (like the country). See more »


Detective Richard Willis: Well, like you were about to go talk to young Keene over there.
Camille Preaker: Oh, is that who that is?
Detective Richard Willis: Yeah, reporters aren't supposed to talk to minors without parental permission.
Camille Preaker: Jesus, I was just gonna hit on him.

Very impressive start
8 January 2019 | by gridoon2019See all my reviews

I haven't read the book, but watching the first episode of the TV adaptation I felt like I was reading the first chapter of a book. It creates a dreamy mood that smoothly blends the present with the past, and gets you hooked quickly. Amy Adams is one of the finest actresses of her generation, and despite (or because of?) her deliberately grungy and un-made-up appearance here, one of the most naturally beautiful as well. *** out of 4.
