HD screencaptures from the 3rd episode of Little Fires Everywhere – ‘Seventy Cents’ – have been added to our Gallery today. This episode had a nice combination of both fiery and more tender Elena moments, and opened up a lot more questions about the central mystery(s) of the show.
Today we’ve added HD screencaptures from the 2nd episode of Little Fires Everywhere – ‘Seeds And All’. I really enjoyed this episode – the book club scene was very funny, and then the following scene was so moving and gave us a glimpse into a different side of Elena. Reese was just fantastic!
The 4th episode is released on Hulu tomorrow, and we’ll continue with HD screencaptures this week.
Reese and Kerry Washington can be seen on the cover of the latest issue of Emmy magazine, promoting Little Fires Everywhere. The magazine has a gorgeous new photoshoot, and in the interview Reese, Kerry, their director and producing partners, and author Celeste Ng talk about how the book was developed into a show and how they dealt with some of the cultural issues within it. The magazine will be available on US news-stands on March 24th.
For Reese Witherspoon, Kerry Washington and their production partners, Little Fires Everywhere was — first and last — a passion project, sparking ardent confessions up and down the call sheet.
Kerry Washington was getting in touch with her inner pyromaniac last fall, and it was… fun.
Washington was on the set of Little Fires Everywhere, the new Hulu limited series in which she stars with Reese Witherspoon, and her character, an artist named Mia Warren, wielding dual lighters, was creating new art from the ruin of past art — setting fire to a big, ripped-up photo of Witherspoon’s character, a tightly wound mom named Elena Richardson.
“It was a cool moment,” Washington says. “Everybody wanted to watch the shooting of this scene. But we could only have a few people there, for safety reasons, and most of those people were firemen, who were giving us lectures about the fastest way off the lot.”
Little Fires Everywhere premiered on Hulu on Wednesday, and they treated us to the first 3 episodes! Reese was typically fabulous in her role of Elena Richardson – she feels like a cross between Big Little Lies‘ Madeline and Bree from Desperate Housewives! The show touched on a number of issues and I liked how it placed equal focus on both the parents and the children’s lives. I’m looking forward to seeing more of the show! Today I’ve added HD screencaptures from the first episode – ‘The Spark’:
Playing With Fires: Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington join forces for Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere
In the Cleveland suburb of Shaker Heights, Elena Richardson (Reese Witherspoon) is sitting down to dinner with her husband and four kids in the meticulously decorated dining room of her spacious home. Across town, single mom Mia Warren (Kerry Washington) is also sitting down to a meal with her daughter…at Lucky Palace, the Chinese restaurant where she recently landed a waitressing job. Mia and young Pearl (Lexi Underwood) are new to the city, and they don’t intend to stay long — certainly not long enough for the smoke to clear.
Hulu’s eight-episode limited series Little Fires Everywhere is based on Celeste Ng’s best-selling 2017 novel about a tight-knit (and uptight) Midwestern community in the ’90s and what two very different moms bring out in each other. “They have this commonality between them, which is that they believe they’re doing what’s best for their children,” says showrunner Liz Tigelaar, who worked on the Apple TV+ series The Morning Show that starred Witherspoon as an impulsive TV reporter. “Through the story, that notion gets unraveled in both of them. They each hold up a mirror to the other, and the results change their lives, the lives of their families, and the lives of the people in the town.”
Because, as the title suggests, this story ends with fire — or rather, that’s where it starts. Both the book and the series open with a house fire, one that seems to point to Elena’s problem child, Izzy (Megan Stott), as the person holding the match. But nothing’s quite as it seems. Slowly, we get to know the rest of Elena’s children — Lexie (Jade Pettyjohn), the overachiever with a thing for cardigans, Trip (Jordan Elsass), the archetypal jock who just needs to find the right girl to reveal his heart of gold, and Moody (Gavin Lewis), the sensitive guy destined to live in the friend zone. Then there’s Pearl Warren, the new girl, who finds herself deeply entangled in the lives of all of the Richardsons. It’s a story about the simplest of human interactions, and how those interactions can provoke larger conversations about racism and classism. That’s what made Ng’s novel a success and why Witherspoon selected it as the fourth pick in her book club.
In a nice moment of light relief, Reese is gracing the cover of the April issue of Vanity Fair magazine! The article focuses on Reese’s love of books and her success in turning books into well-received movies and TV series with strong female leads – including Little Fires Everywhere. It’s a long but good read, and always really nice to see Reese being celebrated and acknowledged in this way. The magazine also has a gorgeous new photoshoot! Read the interview below or at Vanity Fair, and find the photoshoot in our Gallery. We’ll have scans for you when the magazine is released on news-stands.
In recent years, Reese Witherspoon has turned her literary obsession into an empire. Her latest brilliant book adaptation: Little Fires Everywhere, which debuts March 18 on Hulu.
I first met Reese Witherspoon three years ago at Parnassus Books, the store I co-own in Nashville. She’d come to interview me for Hello Sunshine, her media company, and when the interview was finished, our events manager asked Witherspoon if she’d be willing to have her picture taken with one of our shop dogs, Mary Todd Lincoln, a dappled, silky dachshund who’d been photographed with any number of celebrities in the past. It’s Nashville, after all; it’s the kind of thing we do here. Witherspoon took the little dog and tucked her into an open space in the bookshelf behind her, then proceeded to run the gamut of human emotion: joy, surprise, eagerness, love, suffering, hope—spinning out a master class of acting in less than a minute. The amazing part was not how good Witherspoon was at this—she’s a very good actor—the amazing part was how she managed to shine the enormous light of her talent onto a nine-pound dog. In frame after frame, the viewer’s eye skips the movie star and goes straight to the dachshund, which first appears coy, then knowing, then resplendent. If Oscars were given to pups, everyone would have agreed that this was Mary Todd Lincoln’s year.
