I'm just on episode 3 intrigued so far. Have you finished it?

BitOfFun Sun 24-May-20 12:19:08

I'm on episode 3 too- really loving it. Very astute on social awkwardness around race and class.

LiveGr33n Sun 24-May-20 13:21:03

It’s so good and a very good adaptation of the book. They handle the ending well.

BitOfFun Sun 24-May-20 13:23:14

Ooh, don't say anything else- I haven't read the book!

SerenDippitty Sun 24-May-20 13:55:24

Think Reece has bought the rights to make Crawdads and Elinor Elephant. Pretty sure I read she is staring in Cactus too. She has a real knack for picking good books and doing very good adaptations. Thinking of Big Little Lies.

Oliphant

BitOfFun Sun 24-May-20 15:22:34

Yes, Reese is really using her clout properly. She's doing great stuff.

SavageBeauty73 Sun 24-May-20 16:48:13

Great. I enjoyed the book so I'll start tonight.

Reece really is a force to be reckoned with. I follow her book club on Insta.

Missushbb Sun 24-May-20 17:51:11

I wonder who she would play in Eleanor Oliphant? And would they relocate it?

LiveGr33n Sun 24-May-20 18:37:25

Potentially Reece as Eleanor.

Just watched 2 episodes. I love it.

Binged 4 episodes tonight. Really enjoying it. Reese is brilliant. They all are.

MyBlueMoonbeam Mon 25-May-20 03:03:49

Really enjoyed the series despite the ridiculous over acting by Kerry Washington 🙄

Missushbb Mon 25-May-20 11:52:24

😂 she does over act a bit doesn't she? Makes some strange faces!
Loved Pacey back in the day. 😍

She was horrible on Graham Norton to Jennifer Aniston who was only making conversation saying Reese reads a lot of books and Reese said no she doesn’t really! So I would take her with a pinch of salt. I don’t think she is a book worm probably has people doing all that for her. There’s something about her I don’t like. I’d love to know what the rest of the cast on BLL’s thought of her. She reminds me abit of SJP comes accross as everyone’s friend but is known to be all about herself putting her name to everything and apparently not as nice to her co workers.

I am however enjoying this adaptation.

I probably completely missed bits or something but I have questions. Whose house did they stop at at the end and where did Izzy end up? I'm assuming they didn't really pick her up?

Mominatrix Mon 25-May-20 14:13:25

I do think that Reese reads all of the books instead of passing on to handlers - she is no intellectual lightweight and did get into Stanford. Did not go to pursue acting, but still - she was clever enough to get in so I don't doubt her when she says she reads avidly..

Mominatrix Mon 25-May-20 14:37:05

Oops, I stand corrected. Reese did actually go to Stanford, she just did not finish and was an English Literature major.

She definitely does read the books.

EachandEveryone Mon 25-May-20 17:20:45

That’s not what she said on Graham Norton! Made Jennifer look stupid.

MonsteraCheeseplant Mon 25-May-20 17:25:39

I am enjoying this, haven't got to the end but feel like something dramatic is bubbling under the surface. Kerry Washington's character sure is moody.

Cerealkillers Mon 25-May-20 17:28:33

Got through it all yesterday, loved it right up until just before the end. But I’m not sure there was an ending I’d have hoped for? Can’t wait to see Eleanor Oliphant as the book was brilliant!

EachandEveryone Mon 25-May-20 18:06:43

Will it be In Scotland?

cheercaptain Mon 25-May-20 19:53:10

Loving it. On Episode 8. Started yesterday after finishing Sweet Magnolias on Netflix which I also loved.
