I have to admit here, I am a huge admirer of Nicole Kidman and Reese Witherspoon. Yet when I first saw the trailer, I was not impressed. I felt like it was a series customised to suit their respective not-so-important careers in their late age. I admit that sounds so sexist. Of course, I love them both and I still watch their movies but It felt like an attempt to remain relevant.
Anyhoo, then I began hearing rave reviews and even watched one of Nicole’s interview on Ellen where as usual she praised her guests. I finally decided to check out what the deal was. Turns out it was a series based on a book titled – you guessed it right – Big Little Lies, by Liane Moriarty.
So I finally began watching it and am just on episode 3. So far am mighty impressed. I will follow up with a full review of the series once am done watching. But I loved their characters and it doesn’t reek of any need to gain attention.
I have decided to read the book and recommend it as the book of the week. We have a good weekend coming up and what more do you need but a good book to cozy up with?
Coming back to the series, it invokes the emotions any woman might be going through. Myself included. I guess thats why it strikes a chord among us women. It’s not just the main characters that make a mark but even the side characters too. Everyone feels alive in the series – know what I mean? Like you have seen them before? and don’t even get me started on the atmosphere – its a character on its own.
I highly recommend anyone who haven’t watched the series to catch up and share your views here. Enjoy!
