The show really blossoms in it's second episode. You can't help but get drawn into the lives of the characters in the show. The background score,the location and the production value really adds to the charm,and did I forget to mention the wonderful job done by the actors, Reese Witherspoon shines throughout the episode,and Shailene Woodley impresses with her measured display of emotions. Nicole Kidman comes to her own in this episode as we peek further into her life.
