Big Little Lies

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 7/25/17

I enjoyed this miniseries. Parts of it were a little slow. I think it could have been 6 episodes instead of 7.  But it's definitely worth watching.  The performances alone are outstanding. You can't expect less from Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern. Shaileen Woodley, Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott and James Tupper are all fabulous as well. It's an amazing cast with a really good story.

Someone is murdered in the first episode, and then we see the rest in flashbacks. It's not confusing or hard to follow at all, though. It's very well done. The writing is really good.  The music used in the series are also outstanding.  I can't say enough about how good it is.  I look forward to season 2!

There are just two great bonus features, and you should enjoy watching those as well. The series is based on a book, which I didn't know before I started watching it. Don't miss this!

New York, N.Y., May 1, 2017 – Become a part of the conversation and “prepare to be obsessed” (Vogue) with the new HBO® hit limited series Big Little Lies, starring some of the biggest names in show business, including Academy Award®-winner Reese Witherspoon, Academy Award®-winner Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley, just to name a few. Due to make its home entertainment debut on Blu-ray™ and DVD on August 1, 2017 and via Digital Download on May 1, 2017, Big Little Lies includes all seven episodes from the “exquisitely conceived and structured” (The Washington Post) limited series as well as six fascinating “Inside the Episode” pieces and an exclusive extended “About Big Little Lies” piece featuring never-before-seen cast interviews and behind-the-scenes footage.

Big Little Lies is based in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, where nothing is quite as it seems. Doting moms, successful husbands, adorable children, beautiful homes: What lies will be told to keep their perfect worlds from unraveling? Told through the eyes of three mothers – Madeline (Reese Witherspoon), Celeste (Nicole Kidman) and Jane (Shailene Woodley) – Big Little Lies paints a picture of a town fueled by rumors and divided into the haves and have-nots, exposing the conflicts, secrets and betrayals that compromise relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, and friends and neighbors.
 
The cast also includes Alexander Skarsgård, Emmy®-nominee Laura Dern, Adam Scott, Zoë Kravitz, James Tupper and Jeffrey Nordling. Big Little Lies is written for television and created by David E. Kelley (seven-time Emmy® winner for “Picket Fences”, “LA Law”, "The Practice” and "Ally McBeal”; “Goliath") and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (“Dallas Buyers Club”; “Wild”; “Demolition”).
