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
I should wait until the finale but I just couldn't because regardless of how it ends it is already an amazing piece as is. Obviously it would be pretty hard to screw it up when you have this kind of talent on & off screen but let's be honest, we've seen that happen before on rare occasion. Everybody involved found a way to create intense drama & suspense but while also keeping this realistic mundane tone too it, by that I mean that it takes a realistic approach in storytelling by keeping the boring day to day aspect "in" instead of over reaching to make its point. I think that is what really pulls you in because its relatable & makes you realize that most of us are living in a crazy melodrama if we only could be a fly on the wall inside the houses of the people we know. Really great job by everyone!
