We loved the book by Liane Moriarty and when we saw the cast of the TV miniseries, well, does it get any better than Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman and Laura Dern? Yes it turns out it does. Joining series 2 is, wait for it, Meryl Streep. We know there is a death, a cover up and we thought we left the “Monterey 5” happy and contented, playing on the California beach with their kids. Well, not so much.
It was a finale that seemed to offer a neatly tied up ending, and if you had read the book, you had every reason to believe that was the ending.
Enter Meryl Streep with the piercing question to Reese Witherspoon, “I want to know what happened that night,” she asks. “I’m very tempted to ask you, but I don’t think I would get the truth, would I?”
Only 56 days unlit June 9, but who is counting?
