I miss you Big small lies, However Meryl Streep Join Reese Witherspoon And Nicole KidmanDisappointed Monterey Home About Ratan Show Season 2 could not be as strong or addictive as before. I’m still crossing my fingers Season 3 will be over Rumors.

Looking forward to a big Little Lies fix, the new HBO limited series with Kidman actors, Undoing, and David E. KellyThe psychological thriller did not disappoint me. Kelly was also in charge of BLL optimization. Kidman repeats the role of executive producer here. To complicate is a murder. And like BLL, The Undoing is based on a novel, in this case, Jean-Henf Korlitz. You should know.

Part of what drew me to this story was getting to see the characters in a world before Kovid-19, in addition to the killer content. They communicate with friends and acquaintances without disguise or distance. Going to the gym is a stress-free activity. Going to work is still one thing.

There is also luxury content. Grace’s father (Donald Sutherland5th Avenue with a view of Central Park. The apartment is on. Frasers are invited to a fabulous black tie party. Kidman also has a collection of long colored coats ScamOlivia Pope will be jealous.

The illusion of a perfect life for a couple flares up when the mother of one of Henry’s school friends appears to have been murdered. This is a show where you know, just as good. Let’s just say the plot unfolds with exciting twists and turns at every turn: paternity tests, treason, sexy police detectives, clever lawyers, sociopaths, JMW Turner paintings and even hints of a crazy house.

“You’re constantly guessing about everyone, your behavior and what they’re saying.” Kidman spoke at a virtual press conference about the show on October 14. “No one is really saying what they mean. Classic Hitchcock thriller where you can’t be sure what the intentions are. “

Director Susan Beer Hitchcock plays on the element. Behind the Danish filmmaker Bird box And Knight Manager There is a purposeful, and personal, appropriate ramming of characters and events, without getting in the way.

Kidman is ready for his many closeups in this show. She is completely credible as a high-profile, complex, independent, professional woman who is constantly struggling with the many emotions and unpleasant facts that are constantly thrown at her.

The actor and producer told a press conference, “What has happened in 2020 has now put a different lens on the series. “It’s fascinating for people to see these worlds separate. And to be able to buy your justice and have the right not to have it.”

Or how Fraser is able to afford the best prospective lawyer, the highly resourceful Haley Fitzgerald.Or praise.) But even with different categories of gaps, you can only eat anoding as a pure survival TV.

It’s one of those transformative performances in mystery novels – such as BLL, Sharp jects budget or small fire everywhere – led to the right amount of blood and shock and a strong intelligent female blood. It’s an adaptation that urges you to continue binging episodes until you find the killer, a journey that comes with the right dose of uncertainty.
