The brilliant performances by the three main protagonists still cannot make this show worth enduring. The show follows Nicole Kidman, Reese Witherspoon, and Shailene Woodley, three emotionally troubled women who become a part of a police investigation.
The show weaves the police investigation nicely through each episode leaving the viewer to wonder what happened until the very end. The best part of this show was the twist at the very end. I found myself rooting against all three women throughout the show. Reese Witherspoon (Madeline Mackenzie) especially, who plays a rich entitled uppity brat that has zero redeeming qualities. Nicole Kidman (Celeste Wright) brilliantly plays an abused house wife actively trying to portray a perfect family to the outside world. Her performance is the shining light in a very dark world the director built.
If you have a thing for snarky condescending rich women, this might be the show for you. I pray that I never meet women such as this in real life, unfortunately there are quite few out there.
