A murder… A
tragic accident… Or just parents behaving badly? What is indisputable is that
someone is dead.
Big Little Lies
will take you on a roller coaster ride with the secrets of the three women.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She is funny,
biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one. Celeste
is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare but she is paying
a price for the illusion of perfection. New to town, single mum Jane is so
young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious
past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different
crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place.
Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and
second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the little lies
that can turn lethal.
