HBO’s ‘Big Little Lies,’ created by David E. Kelley and based off of the New York Times bestselling book written by Liane Moriarty, might easily be the best show of 2017.
A perfect life is a perfect lie
The slogan for ‘Big Little Lies’ is essentially what the message of the series boils down to: no life is perfect, and those pretending their life is perfect are lying. The show is, however, more profound than one simple theme. On the surface, the series is a dark comedy drama wrapped up in a murder mystery. Underneath that, it is interwoven with the psychological examination of women, family, culture, trauma, relationships, and, ultimately, the fragility of humanity.
It is made abundantly clear in the show that it does not matter who you are or where you come from, or what your background is, life applies to all of us, and we are all flawed.
