HBO released the first full trailer for their seven-episode limited drama series Big Little Lies based on Liane Moriarty’s bestselling book of the same name. On Sunday, February 19, viewers will meet Celeste Wright (Nicole Kidman) and Madeline Martha Mackenzie (Reese Witherspoon), well-to-moms that reside in the city of Monterey. Both are moms to first graders and it is through this connection that they befriend local newbie Jane Chapman (Shailene Woodley), also a mom to a similarly aged child.
At the center of this story are lies, tears, betrayal, and even murder. These women will have to put their pettiness aside and come together or they risk falling apart.
“Are you new to Monterey,” Witherspoon as Mackenzie asks in the trailer. Woodley as Chapman responds, “Yeah, we just moved here a few weeks ago.” Witherspoon adds enthusiastically, “You’re going to love it!” Woodley responds, “You’re so nice.” Witherspoon says,”This is Monterey. We pound people with nice.” Kidman adds, “to death.”
It’s going to be interesting to see if all these women are able to do an about face in order to get out of a sticky situation. Watch the full trailer below:
