Who does not look forward to uncovering dirt and gossip bag facades with opskalere normalitet? The sande stories in the beautiful home, with their well-groomed lawns and the real dynamics of the supernatural PTA presidents and the hectic workmothers. The interior is derived from “happy” couples who are looking forward to working in their Ferrari while a great mother ferries the children to school in their SUV while trying to find meaning in the pursuit of the healthiest juice, den bedste Soul Cycle klasse, den mest prestigefyldte caterer.
We are titled to discover petty jalousies, reluctant neighbors, dark secrets, extra fighting and gasp, maybe even a murder or two!
Disse åbenbaringer var faktisk en stor appel af ABCs hit Desperate husmødre when it came out in 2004. We followed the inhabitants of Wisteria Lane and their intricate friendships as if they were real Teri Hatcher like Neurotic Susan, Marcia Cross as imminent perfectionist Bree, Felicity Huffman who stressed mom Lynette and Eva Longoria as sexy adultery Gabrielle. Og nu er vi i live i vicariously gennem andre forstæder kvinders forhold og dysfunktioner i Big Little Lies.

At the premier in Hollywood where only the pilot was shown before a big after party, the spokesman asked for more. Dette er Desperate husmødre on steroider – beautifully shot and directed and all dressed up with mega movie star-Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley as female leader, flanked by veteran Laura Dern and hipster beauty Zoë Kravitz. It also has the advantage of being adapted by the screen of Lianne Moriarty’s best selling novel by TV veteran David Kelly and was helvetet by Jean Marc Valle, who also directed Witherspoon and Dern in the movie Vild.
Showet åbner med en uløst mord på en fyldig fashion show / velgørenhedsbegivenhed for en grundskole. We do not know what happened, who did it or even who was killed, but after the first disturbing attitude we quickly move into the background of the school’s leading ladies and start studying what could have happened. Sammen med deres loyaliteter og støtte til hinanden vidner vi deres passive aggressive barbs og deres kat kæmper over magt, popularitet og status.
Forbundet af den kendsgerning, at deres første gradere er alle klassekammerater, er Witherspoon som Madeline-den voksne, designet pumpe-bærende version af den manipulerende, opportunistiske og overdrevent cheery studerende, she played perfectly for Valg; Kidman som Celeste, en sårbar, smuk mor til tvilling drenge med en smuk, men voldelig mand Perry (spillet af Alexander Skarsgard); og Woodley som Jane, the fragile, out of place newcomer-a mysterious single mother with a secret that will soon brighten.
There is also Dern who has worked working mother Renata, who navigates at the playground and board with the same ambition, while Kravitz depicts socially conscious Bonnie, a hip yoga instructor, who also happens to be Madeline’s former husband’s very younger second wife. Everyone feels like Emmy worthige performances – especially Witherspoon’s.
The children are also good – both the characters and the actor-realistic mini versions of the parents, they model themselves after complete with sarcastic quips, cellphone dependence, fake accusations and a desperate need to fit in.
Ved at slutte med en mord, gør at se denne show spændt. We see it with a sense of imminent doom, our antennas are always aware of the traces. Mænd det giver også en berusende rejse. I can not wait for episode to.
