On the surface, in the tranquil seaside town of Monterey, California, everything seems the same. The mothers continue to dote, the husbands support, the children remain adorable and the houses are just as beautiful. But the night of the school fundraiser changed all that, leaving the community reeling as the “Monterey Five” — Madeline, Celeste, Jane, Renata and Bonnie — bond together to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.
Created by David E. Kelley, teleplays by David E. Kelley and story by Kelley and Liane Moriarty, and based on the novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Liane Moriarty, BIG LITTLE LIES returns for its seven-episode second season in June, exclusively on HBO. The new season explores the malignancy of lies, the durability of friendships, the fragility of marriage and, of course, the vicious ferocity of sound parenting. Relationships will fray, loyalties will erode…and the potential for emotional and bodily injury shall loom.
With all seven episodes directed and executive produced by Andrea Arnold (“Red Road,” “Fish Tank,” “Wuthering Heights,” “American Honey”; Oscar® winner for “Wasp”), BIG LITTLE LIES features teleplays by David E. Kelley (“Goliath,” “Mr. Mercedes”; 11-time Emmy® winner for “Picket Fences,” “LA Law,” “The Practice,“ “Ally McBeal” and “Big Little Lies”).
The show will also be available on HBO NOW, HBO GO, HBO On Demand and affiliate portals.
We’re working towards completing the Films section of our Gallery and today is a big one! We’ve added over 1,300 additional photos from Wild – this includes stills, set photos, and HD screencaptures from trailers and featurettes. There are some particularly beautiful very high quality, close-up posters. Reese gives such a heartfelt and moving performance in this incredible film – we just can’t tell you enough how much we love it! Further down this post are a few of the video featurettes. Enjoy all the updates, and we’ll be completing the last few Movies sections very shortly…
Today, it’s the The Good Lie section of the Gallery that we complete – high quality stills, HD trailer screencaptures, photos from the set, and screencaptures from featurettes have all been added. Credit to Reese for highlighting such an important issue through this film, and it’s an interesting story with a good performance from Reese. It’s not one of my favourite films of hers though, and I felt it was lacking in several areas.
Still – enjoy the photos … and check back regularly for on-going Movie section updates…
As we move through the Film section to complete our Gallery, today the Devil’s Knot section has been updated. Additional stills, posters & trailer screencaptures have been added of Reese in her 2013 drama-thriller based on a real-life crime. This was a very different film for Reese and unlike anything she’d done before; it’s not one of my favourites of Reese’s, but I love seeing her try different things. It was nice to see her reunited with her Best Laid Plans co-star, Alessandro Nivola, though (even if he was a bit suspicious in this)!
In our task to complete the Gallery we move on from the infamous love triangle period, and onto the critically acclaimed ‘Reese-renaissance’ period! Today the Mud section has been completed, with a few additional stills, trailer screencaps and posters. This was an enjoyable, slow-burning film with great performances, writing, directing, cinematography etc. Although Reese’s role was small, the film is definitely worth a watch – I love that Reese changed direction with her career and took this role, working with the fantastic Jeff Nichols and such a varied cast. I hope she does more like this in the future….
We continue our task of completing the Gallery with updates for This Means War, the final movie in Reese’s ‘love triangle era’. We’ve added a few new stills, lots of posters, screencaptures from the fun B-Roll footage, additional promotional photoshoot pictures, and more. This was a fun movie, but we didn’t like Reese’s character and the ending was very unsatisfying! We hope Reese and Tom Hardy work together again…
Reese graces the cover of the new February issue of US Vogue! The magazine features a story on her as the “moral compass of Hollywood” (which is a great title for her!), and features an extensive new interview and a new photoshoot – including a photo with Betty and Ava. It’s a fantastic article exploring how Reese’s career has developed, and focuses mostly on her recent move into production and business; there are also some great quotes from Cheryl Strayed, Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. I also liked reading about where her Oscar is, and that she has hardbound copies of scripts from her movies!
Read the full article below, and find high quality photos from the cover and the shoot in our Gallery. We’ll have scans for you soon. Make sure you pick up a copy when you can!
Reese Witherspoon: Activist, Advocate, Hollywood’s Moral Compass
The first time Reese Witherspoon found herself suspended from school was in third grade, when she was caught running a custom-barrette business from her desk. (She painted store-bought barrettes and sold them at a profit; when her paint pens leaked onto her desk, she was apprehended.) Another time was during her junior year, at a private girls’ high school in Nashville, when she complained to her English teacher that the work they were doing wasn’t challenging enough. Witherspoon was in many ways a model student—good grades, popular, a soccer player and cheerleader—but she also had a reputation for telling teachers what they were doing was wrong.
“I always tended to be outspoken with my opinions,” she says. “Whether they were appropriate or not.”
More than two decades later, Witherspoon is still fighting the status quo. Insofar as Hollywood is an extreme version of high school, a fishbowl of fragile egos, insecurity, and often-misdirected sexual energy, she has taken it upon herself to be a champion of the overlooked and the underestimated. She may still bear the imprint of the perky-blonde roles that kept her in American-sweetheart mode for the better part of two decades, but something’s changed beneath the surface. Witherspoon has become a formidable businesswoman, launching a company that has a hand in just about every imaginable sector of contemporary media, and she’s become a formidable activist as well, fighting for greater representation in Hollywood of people of color, LGBTQ people, people with disabilities, and—most of all—women.
“The idea is to put women at the center of the story,” Witherspoon says, sitting barefoot and in jeans in the kitchen of her sunny, sprawling Los Angeles home as her three dogs—a German shepherd named Nash (short for Nashville), a French bulldog named Pepper, and a lab named Hank—amble and snort among the rooms. “I was sick of making movies where I was the only female lead on the set. I was sick of seeing scripts where there was one female role, badly written, and yet every actress in town wanted the part because there was nothing else.”
There is perhaps no greater example in the history of television of putting women at the center than Big Little Lies, the HBO sensation that picked up eight Emmys in 2017. Witherspoon executive-produced the series with Nicole Kidman, with whom she also stars alongside Laura Dern, Zoë Kravitz, and Shailene Woodley. In the second season, which airs in late spring, Meryl Streep will bring the show’s number of female leads to six.
HBO aired a new teaser trailer for its 2019 shows during last night’s Golden Globe Awards – and it included new footage from Big Little Lies season 2! We see Meryl Streep pleading to know what happened to her son, and the 5 leading ladies in a line-up. Have a watch…
