Curated by: Anna Grigoryan

From the captivating "cool girl" monologue to the chillingly unsympathetic mother figures portrayed in "Sharp Objects," Gillian Flynn is masterfully crafting female villains that truly send shivers down our spines. Despite their cold and calculated natures, we can't help but be mesmerized by these complex characters. Flynn's portrayal of womanhood is a far cry from the warm and nurturing archetypes we often see on screen, but unfortunately all too familiar in real life. To delve deeper into her work, we've curated a playlist of Gillian Flynn's interviews and reviews of her work.

A Conversation with Gillian Flynn
Austin Film Festival's On Story
This week on On Story we’ll hear from Gone Girl author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn. Gillian Flynn is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Gone Girl, for which she wrote the Golden Globe-nominated screenplay. She is also the author of the New York Times bestsellers Dark Places and Sharp Objects. Flynn later adapted and executive produced the Emmy-nominated SHARP OBJECTS for HBO in 2018, which starred Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson. Also in 2018, Flynn co-wrote, with director Steve McQueen, the screenplay for the heist thriller WIDOWS, starring Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, and Cynthia Erivo. Most recently, Flynn wrote and executive produced UTOPIA for Amazon. I spoke with Gillian Flynn at the 2020 Austin Film Festival about her creative process of writing across mediums and adapting her own work.  Clips of Gone Girl & Widows courtesy of Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation & Regency Entertainment Clips of Sharp Objects courtesy of Warner Brothers Television & HBO Clips of Dark Places courtesy of A24 & Denver & Delilah Films
