Hulu’s adaptation of the best-selling novel “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng took some liberties (with the author’s approval), as many adaptations do, and put a twist in the finale to keep viewers who read the book from knowing how it would end.
The series, which stars powerhouse actresses Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington, is about two very different mothers who cross paths when Mia Warren (Washington) and her daughter move to the cookie-cutter, perfect town of Shaker Heights and rent a property belonging to Elena Richardson (Witherspoon). Mia is an artist, a wandering spirit whose lifestyle dramatically clashes with Elena’s rigid rule-abiding principles and yet they constantly find themselves thrown together. Elena wants to feel like a good person, she so desperately wants to be seen as a kind and charitable person that she lets Mia and her daughter rent the property for a cheap rate and even offers her a job as a house manager (housekeeper). Mia doesn’t care for Elena but accepts her offer so she can stay close to her daughter who has befriended Elena’s four children. As Pearl becomes increasingly close with the Richardson family, Elena’s blacksheep daughter Izzy is drawn to Mia’s artistic nature.
