Although I know I mainly write about Netflix series, I have to admit I do watch more than just shows on Netflix. A new show I have just started is the HBO drama Big Little Lies. The show is based off the same-title best-selling novel by Liane Moriarty and stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Shailene Woodley as mothers of first graders at the local, high society school. The show starts with the police investigating a murder during a school function, the show then flashbacks to their kid’s first day of school, in which Woodley’s son, played by Iain Armitage, strangles another child. The show then flashes forward to the different parents being interrogated. We find through the interrogation more about some of the “helicopter parents” and the relationships between the parents leading up to the day of the murder. Though the show can be chaotic at times due to the marital relationship of both Nicole Kidman and Alexander Skarsgard’s characters, the show is none-the-less very interesting. This program able to shed a light on today’s parenting styles, while simultaneously taking a look at how much gossip can go around a small school.
If your interested in watching the show it airs on Sundays on HBO at 9:00 pm (Eastern). I, personally, enjoy the show, but would love to know what if you’ve watched the show and loved it or hated it. Make sure to leave your comments!
