Jean-Marc Vallée’s Evolution to Sharp Objects From Big Little Lies

Big Little Lies  was an HBO drama, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, with a murder mystery embedded in its intoxicating center. The same can be said about  Sharp Objects , the HBO limited series based on  Gillian Flynn’s novel  that’s directed and edited by Vallée. The two overlap in a number of ways, actually. Both traffic in buried secrets, the degree to which a town defines its populace, and women who feel obligated to keep up appearances. Both star Academy Award–nominated actresses — in  Sharp Objects , that would be Amy Adams and Patricia Clarkson, who plays a woman that could be described as an older, more somber version of Reese Witherspoon’s Madeline Martha MacKenzie, if Madeline were also a character in an exceptionally twisted Tennessee Williams play. Both highlight music’s ability to transport human beings to other places and times. Even my response to  Sharp Objects  reminded me of my response to  Big Little Lies  in that I instantly became addicted to and obsessed with the second Vallée series just like I did with the first. Every time I recently tried to watch an episode of literally any other show, I thought: “Why am I watching this when I could be watching  Sharp Objects  right now?” I said the same thing during the all-too-brief  Big Little Lies binge of 2017. .   ...Read More... http://www.vulture.com/2018/07/sharp-objects-bll-jean-marc-vallee-evolution.html?utm_source=nym&utm_medium=f1&utm_campaign=feed-full

Big Little Lies Season 2: Everything We Know So Far

Big Little Lies was supposed to be a miniseries; it wasnt supposed to return for a second season. But it proved to be such a big hit that HBO just couldnt let it go. After much speculation and a triumphant awards season, HBO made it official and ordered another seven episodes full of mom drama, lies (of all shapes and sizes) and stunning beachfront property. Since the first season covered the entirety of Liane Moriartys bestselling novel, little is known about the direction the second season will take or how the show will build upon the already-told story. But with the series currently in production, we do know some of what Big Little Lies Season 2 will look like.
