Eliza Scanlen, Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson 

Review of "Killing Eve" 7/10/18 by Suzanne
airs Sundays on HBO

Amy Adams stars in a non-glamourous role as a messed-up reporter investigating the murder of teenage girls in her small town. It's a dark, moody show with many layers and fine performances.

Honestly, though, I've had enough of these shows, after watching "Broadchurch," "The Killing," "The Bridge," "The Sinner" and "Mr. Mercedes." There are so many of these types of shows where the detective/cop/reporter is trying to solve the crime of murdered young boys or girls, even though they're self-destructive and have so many horrible problems of their own. It makes me numb after awhile.

If you're going to choose one to watch, though, than this is probably one of the better ones. Created by super-storyteller Marti Noxon, it's based on a 2006 Gillian Flynn best-selling novel. It's also a "limited series," so there may not be more than the 8 episodes.


Based on the book of the same name by The New York Times bestselling author Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl, Dark Places), this eight-episode series tells the story of reporter Camille Preaker (Adams) who returns to her small hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls. Trying to put together a psychological puzzle from her past, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too closely.

Amy Adams stars, along with co-stars Patricia Clarkson, Chris Messina, Eliza Scanlen, Elizabeth Perkins and Matt Craven.

Directed by Jean-Marc Vallée from scripts by Marti Noxon and Gillian Flynn.

Executive producers are Jason Blum, Charles Layton and Jessica Rhoades, as well as Amy Adams, Gillian Flynn, Marti Noxon, Jean-Marc Vallée, Nathan Ross and Gregg Fienberg. Additional writers include co-executive producer Vince Calandra, co-producer Scott Brown, consulting producer Alex Metcalf, and Ariella Blejer & Dawn Kamoche.An Entertainment One (eOne) and Blumhouse Television production.
