HBO has been putting some great material out there in recent years. With triumphs like Game of Thrones, True Detective and recently Westworld, the network has been responsible for bringing forth top notch material. The limited series on the network have always been some to look forward to and this season, they have another in store for us.
Based on the bestselling novel by Liane Moriarty, Big Little Lies features the story of three women played by Reese Witherspoon, Shailene Woodley and Nicole Kidman who become friends as their lives intricate mysteries and secrets start to intertwine. The series is created by David E. Kelley and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée. The first teaser for the series was recently released and it gives us something to be really excited about. To think of it, a lot to be excited about.
The teaser starts with Reese Witherspoon standing with her daughter in a sliding door, watching out at the ocean when the girl asks what she’s looking at in the ocean. What’s out there?
In a montage set to her voice over and The Temptation’s version of “Papa Was A Rollin’ Stone”, we see the three ladies running on the beach, she says life, Nicole Kidman’s character kisses Alexander Skarsgard, Zoe Kravitz kisses a girl, she says dreams, a couple sitting out next to the fire, a birthday party, kid zooming in on phone camera, she says mystery and Nicole Kidman awakens, we see Shailene and a boy standing in front of an aquarium with swarm of fish.
The little girl says monsters, Shailene wakes up scared and looks at the boy standing overhead with a sigh of relief. Alexander Skarsgard comes with cameras flashing while Nicole Kidman moves wearing pearls and black dress. Adam Scott imitates Elvis on the table. There are a few kissing and making out scenes which implies that we will be seeing a lot of physical stuff in the series.
There is also one with Laura Dern. Wonder who she will be? Shailene almost goes off the cliff running when Reese’s voice says that who knows what lies there beneath the surface. More glimpses of love scenes and then someone injured being loaded on an ambulance, some stares, police lights and someone standing on the edge of the ocean. The three characters awake from their slumber. They are all seen tensed in their own homes. They overlook something that clearly terrifies them and someone shoots a gun. The last shot is of ocean waves crashing against rocks.
While giving nothing of substance away, the teaser has accomplished it’s job of making the audience to look forward to a lot of things. We cannot wait till 2017 when the series will premiere on HBO.
