Madeline is a main character in Big Little Lies.
She is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one.
Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).
Madeline has a teenage daughter. She is divorced from her husband.
Reese Witherspoon will portray Madeline.
