What I'm Watching - Big Little Lies

Remember when I gushed about how much I loved Liane Moriarty's novel, Big Little Lies (see here)? Well, HBO, turned it into a mini-series with some big name stars (Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoë Kravitz), and it's so good!!
I definitely recommend checking it out. Liane Moriarty is great at exploring the drama of everyday life. In this case, it's a bunch of overly involved mothers of first graders. The story starts off with a death, but the viewer doesn't know who dies or how it happens. Liane Moriarty is the master of the gradual build, so you may find the show just a tad slow moving, but if it stays true to the novel, the payout will be worth it.

Reese Witherspoon, and especially, Nicole Kidman are both killing it too. I'd put money they'll both be nominated for an Emmy/Golden Globe next awards season. Also, the amazing homes of these characters and the ocean settings are a general feast for the eyes. If you're looking for a low commitment guilty pleasure, Big Little Lies is it.

What are you watching these days?
