Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies is an HBO miniseries based on the bestselling novel by Liane Moriarty. It is creepy and good. If you are not watching it already, you should check it out. It has a stellar cast: Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern, Alexander Skarsgård, Adam Scott, James Tupper, and Zoë Kravitz.

Screen or Paper?

Of course I could not help myself and read the novel after watching the first episode, and this is one of the few cases where I think the screen version is better than the paper version. Of course you get more insight into the characters and their history in the novel, but that is understandable. There have only been a few obvious differences between the two so far, and it will be interesting to see how the rest unfolds on the screen.
