A murder . . . a tragic accident . . . or just parents
What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.
But who did what?
Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and
biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no
one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into
her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in
the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is
this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage
daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over
her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).
Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world
stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times,
who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that
the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look
set to become the king and queen of the school parent body.
But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling
with how much more she is willing to pay.
New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother
mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and
harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline
and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them
realizes 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, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and
the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
