Nicole Kidman is a woman trapped in an alternately abusive and passionate relationship on Big Little Lies.
The fifth episode of the HBO show explored the complexities of the disturbing marriage between Celeste (Kidman) and Perry (Alexander Skarsgard) on Sunday night.
Early in the episode the gorgeous and wealthy couple can be seen passionately locked in sexual intercourse on the family’s kitchen countertop.
Reese Witherspoon expects loyalty from her longtime friends on and off set.
The Louisiana leading lady from HBO’s new dark comedy series “Big Little Lies,” is reportedly outraged with co-star Nicole Kidman for her failure to help promote the show, while instead, talking up her time on another film, “Lion” during a recent press interview.
“Reese is furious that Nicole hasn’t done more to support ‘Big Little Lies’ … all she’s talked about in interviews is ‘Lion’” a source told the Daily Mail. “Had Reese known that Nicole would put the show so far on the backburner, she would have cast some random.”
While Perry, partially admitted to abusing his wife to the counselor, in a private session Celeste is more guarded.
Her therapist, expertly portrayed by Robin Weigert, delicately probes the topic of her husband’s violence.
Celeste, while internally visualizing the various humiliations and abusive wrath she endures from her husband (and in its own twisted way how the abuse turns her on), lies to her therapist, protecting her spouse from any potential ramifications.
