Screencaptures from the sixth episode of “Big Little Lies”‘ second season, “The Bad Mother”, have been added to the photo gallery with many thanks to Jess. Now we’re only one episode away from the finale, and probably the last ever episode of “Big Little Lies”. While episode six didn’t feature too much Mary-Louise, the season finale will be a courtroom showdown between Mary Louise and Nicole Kidman’s Celeste. So I think we can all be excited for Sunday’s episode. As always, make sure to find highlight clips of each episode in the video archive.

Celeste (Nicole Kidman) is blindsided by Mary Louise (Meryl Streep); Bonnie (Zoë Kravitz) contemplates a solution to her mother’s suffering and her own ongoing guilt; Ed (Adam Scott) entertains an unusual proposition; The Monterey Five feel the pressure of increased scrutiny of Perry’s death.

Vanity Fair has an in-depth article on Greta Gerwig’s upcoming “Little Women”, including some exclusive pictures from the cast, featuring one on-set picture of Gerwig and Meryl Streep. Greta Gerwig doesn’t remember reading Little Women for the first time. “It must have been read to me,” she says when I ask for her earliest memories of author Louisa May Alcott’s classic tale of four girls imagining a world beyond their humble surroundings outside Civil War–era Boston.“I always knew who Jo March was,” Gerwig continues. “She was the person I wanted to be.” In that, Gerwig has had plenty of company. Little Women is one of the most popular books in the history of American letters; after the first volume sold out its initial run of 2,000 copies in 1868, the novel has never been out of print. Simone de Beauvoir, born in 1908, pretended as a child that she was Jo—Alcott’s protagonist and stand-in, a determined, stubborn tomboy with a flair for writing. Ursula Le Guin says that Alcott’s Jo made writing as a girl feel possible. In film, Katharine Hepburn played Jo in 1933; Winona Ryder, in 1994. Now, Gerwig has created her own Jo for the screen in Saoirse Ronan, who also starred in Gerwig’s debut as a solo director, 2017’s Oscar-nominated Lady Bird.
