Big Lit­tle Lies

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - FILM MAKER -

[SKY On De­mand] Di­rected by Jean Marc Val­lée. Star­ring Ni­cole Kid­man and Reese Wither­spoon.

What an Em­mys this year is go­ing to be – the war of the women at the top of their game. Lead­ing the charge will be this pow­er­house of a se­ries with its A-List cast. Based on the Aus­tralian best­seller re­lo­cated to wealthy Mon­terey Cal­i­for­nia, Big Lit­tle Lies is, quite sim­ply, an exquisitely ex­e­cuted work of tele­vi­sion art. It starts with a death and fin­ishes with the same death, and ev­ery­thing else in-be­tween is noth­ing but sweet, sweet life: com­pli­cated, messy, un­ex­pected and un­fath­omably watch­able. Min­ing the re­la­tion­ships be­tween five women, their men and their chil­dren, it doesn’t take long be­fore the cracks in their idyl­lic sea­side lives start to show. Watch it for Ni­cole Kid­man, watch it for Reese Wither­spoon, watch it be­cause it’s BRIL­LIANT. You have your or­ders – now hop to it!
