"Apples Never Fall" is the latest celebrity-stuffed adaptation of a Liane Moriarty bestseller after "Big Little Lies" and "Nine Perfect Strangers": a gripping story about buried family secrets packed with shocking twists.

Fresh from her Oscar-nominated turn in "NYAD", Bening heads up an impeccable cast to play Joy Delaney. She’s a newly retired tennis coach who's enjoyed a lifetime of success with her husband (the Emmy-nominated Neill). 

But when Joy disappears, Stan seems to know more than he's letting on. Is he the culprit? The more the couples' children investigate, the more damning secrets come to light.
