Quote :
"Big Little Lies, the seven-part limited series developed by and starring Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon, is among HBO’s most anticipated projects for 2017. Written by Emmy winner David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, The Practice) and directed by Oscar nominee Jean-Marc Vallée (Dallas Buyers Club), the project is adapted from Liane Moriarty’s acclaimed novel of the same name and features a supporting cast strong enough that it could dominate next year’s Emmy Awards.

Described as a subversive black comedy, HBO’s Big Little Lies apparently weaves between the mundane and the outrageous, telling the story of three mothers whose quaint, perfect lives slowly begin to unravel. Kidman and Witherspoon are joined by Shailene Woodley in the lead roles, with Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, Adam Scott, and Alexander Skarsgård filling out the main cast. Witherspoon optioned rights to the book alongside Kidman in 2014 and subsequently enlisted her Wild director Vallée to come aboard and helm all seven episodes. For both actresses, Big Little Lies marks their first major TV series roles in more than 20 years."

it was good. short, but that kept it from getting too drawn out.

i wish they wrapped up the infidelity storyline. up til 20 minutes from the end (at the fundraiser), play-producer's-wife was still mean mugging home girl, like something dramatic was going to happen, but nah.

Well yeah, that was part of the whole point though. There were so many people that hated/had cause to kill someone else. So they dragged out all those storylines to keep you wondering who was gonna kill who in the finale. In the opening moments they really uh, beat you over the head with it.
