THE sim­i­lar­i­ties hang in the air like hu­mid­ity: dam­aged women drink­ing away their pain in com­mu­ni­ties paral­ysed by se­crets and lies. Di­rec­tor du jour Jean-Marc Val­lée was at the helm of both lit­er­ary adap­ta­tions, with his smallscreen style recog­nis­able in the ten­sion, sear­ing light, and dark places you just never ex­pect the com­plex and com­pelling sto­ries to go. Amy Adams (above) is at her ca­reer-best as an al­co­holic reporter sent back to her home town to in­ves­ti­gate a child serial killer; an as­sign­ment that tears the band-aid off her own still-weep­ing psy­cho­log­i­cal and phys­i­cal wounds.
