A perfect life is a perfect lie.
One of the most talked about shows of 2017 boasts a stellar cast, even by HBO’s lofty standards. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Laura Dern and Shailene Woodley play upper middle class moms in Monterey, California, whose seemingly idyllic lifestyles mask ennui and high stress levels that ultimately lead to murder. Dangerous housewives, not deperate ones. Based on the novel by Liane Moriarty (which is set in Sydney), screenwriter David E. Kelley (The Practice, Ally McBeal) weaves the mystery of whodunit? into a seven-episode suburban melodrama focused on female relationships and the illusion of perfection. Conceived as a standalone miniseries, Big Little Lies has proven so popular that the pressure is on for a second season – even the cast are pushing for it!
