A hit Hulu original series, Little Fires Everywhere is based on Celeste Ng’s book of the same name. The following is a list of what fans can expect to see next.
the Celeste Ng-penned miniseries Little Fires Everywhere, which was adapted from her book of the same name, will premiere on Hulu in April of 2020. The show’s stars include Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon, who also served as executive producer through her company Hello Sunshine. The show delves deep into what appears to be a picture-perfect small town, but nothing is ever as it seems.
Although the town of Shaker Heights, Ohio, wants visitors to think it is perfect, the truth is that it is full of mysteries. The rules and guidelines in this town are designed to keep everyone safe and comfortable, but the story explores what happens when the rules don’t work or worse, when the rules are broken.
1. Gone Girl
Another film adaptation is Gone Girl, which is based on the same-named novel by a female author. When Amy learns that her husband has been having an affair with a student, she hatches a plan to leave him and have him falsely accused of her murder.
Like Little Fires Everywhere, it explores how far we’ll go to make things appear perfect on the outside when there are plenty of secrets hidden within.
2. Girl On The Train
A woman struggling with addiction and how her life has fallen apart because of it is the subject of the film Girl on the Train, starring the incredibly talented Emily Blunt. This suspenseful mystery will keep viewers guessing right up until the very end.
This documentary is a must-see for fans of Little Fires Everywhere who binge-watched every episode to figure out what would happen next and develop their own theories.
3. Thelma And Louise
In addition to Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington’s on-screen chemistry, fans love Little Fires Everywhere because of their ability to share the screen and deliver stellar performances while feeding off of one another.
Thelma and Louise proved that there is a large audience for female-led productions, which led to an increase in the value of strong female leads in Hollywood.
After finding success as a child actress, Reese Witherspoon has become a household name. For fans of Reese Witherspoon who enjoy seeing her in more dramatic roles and for those who enjoy revisiting some of Reese’s earlier work, we recommend FEAR, which also features Mark Wahlberg.
When Witherspoon’s character Nicole meets Wahlberg’s character David, she falls in love with him. At first, David appears to be the ideal boyfriend, but his character quickly deteriorates, and Nicole’s fantasy relationship quickly turns into a nightmare from which she cannot escape.
5. Mr. & Mrs. Smith
Nothing is what it seems in this feature film. This action-comedy film stars Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie as a married couple who are secret assassins. Despite their best efforts, Mr. and Mrs. Smith have been ordered by their respective agencies to assassinate one another.
Keeping secrets from your spouse is never a good idea, as viewers learn from watchingLittle Fires Everywhere, and could actually make things worse.
6. The Skulls
The town of Shaker Heights serves as the setting for the novel Little Fires Everywhere. A utopian-style community was created here, where residents follow a set of rules to keep themselves and the town itself in perfect condition. According to numerous films and television shows, rules like these are ineffective because they encourage people to hide things.
As seen in the 1990 thriller The Skulls, people will go to any length to keep their secrets safe in this thriller from that era. The film also features Joshua Jackson as Elena’s husband Bill Richmond, played by Reese Witherspoon.
7. Secrets And Lies
Secrets and Liesis is a critically acclaimed British film from the late 1990s about an adopted woman who discovers the identities of her birth parents and unearths a bewildering amount of information about her dysfunctional family.
Little Fires Everywhere, another film, also deals with the issue of adoption. Both stories center on the fairness of the adoption process and the ease with which someone’s past can be buried as a result.
Shaker Heights, Ohio, aspires to be the most pristine and ideal place to call home, succeeds. On their first visit, Mia and Pearl, two newcomers to the town, are taken aback by how picture-perfect everything and everyone seems, like something out of a 1950s sitcom.
Also starring Reese Witherspoon, the filmPleasantville takes this idea and turns it into a bad idea by dropping two modern teenagers into the fictional town of a 1950s television show.
9. To Kill A Mockingbird
Many of the novels written by women over the years have been adapted into films that have gone on to become cinematic classics.
Harper Lee, the author of To Kill a Mockingbird, is one of these writers.
Gregory Peck starred in the film adaptation of the novel, which was also made into a movie. Like Little Fires Everywhere, this book and subsequent film examine society and long-standing racial issues.
10. Can You Ever Forgive Me?
In order to revive her waning writing career, Melissa McCarthy plays a female writer who forges and sells letters from deceased authors and playwrights based on a biographical book by Lee Israel. McCarthy delivers an incredible performance as the lead in this dramatic film, which is powerful because of its openness.
McCarthy received an Oscar nomination for her work on Little Fires Everywhere, which featured a predominantly female cast and a raw honesty that appealed to many viewers.
There are small fires all over the place.
