Lies of kids and adults
Big little lies is known as being a best seller book and producing it to the little screen is no easy task, but in the hands of HBO they know how to get things done. Most people will think (from advertisements) that the focus of the series will be about the murder case, however the true lore is about marriage, kids, and some deceptions. So if you follow the series for the murder case then unfortunately you’d be disappointed since it ends in an underwhelming fashion. On the other hand the drama side although not perfect but in a way satisfying and the acting is outstanding that will keep you engaged. The cast and direction is also high quality and on par of a normal movie.
To conclude the main plot starts big but diminishes slowly by time, however the themes of motherhood, marriage, and relationships makes it keep going and compensates for its flaws.
