Amy Adams can’t hone dull edges of HBO’s ‘Sharp Objects’

“Sharp Objects” transparently wants to be this year’s “Big Little Lies,” from its movie-star lead (Amy Adams) to the gauzy, washed-out tones and flashbacks employed by Jean-Marc Vallee, who directed both. The result, however, isn’t nearly as compelling, focusing on a missing-girl mystery that actually plays second fiddle by a long shot to the protagonist’s tortured personal odyssey.
