When Madeline and Celeste take new-in-town single mom Jane under their wing, none of them realize how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all. Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.Written by
Filming of the first season took five months. The crew shot four pages a day, just like a feature. Director Jean-Marc Vallée treated "Big Little Lies" as if it were a theatrical movie, breaking the five-month shoot down into two chunks and shooting for 88 days. See more »
Celeste is supposedly an American but she eats like a Brit, pushing food onto her fork with a knife. See more »
Exquisite. 'Big Little Lies' takes us to an incredible journey with its emotional and intriguing storyline. The characters are so thoroughly and thoughtfully developed. Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern gave breathtaking performances. Directing, screenplay, photography, everything is brilliantly done. I would deeply recommend it.
