She gave her daughter everything. But everything was not enough. HBO’s new miniseries Mildred Pierce brings to life the memorable characters introduced in James M. Cain’s classic 1941 novel of pride and privilege in the middle class. Starring Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet, and co-written and directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Todd Haynes, this five-part drama is an intimate portrait of a uniquely independent woman who finds herself newly divorced during the Depression years, as she struggles to carve out a new life for herself and her family. The story explores Mildred’s unreasonable devotion to her insatiable daughter Veda (Evan Rachel Wood), as well as the complex relationship she shares with the indolent men in her life, including her polo-playing lover Monty Beragon (Guy Pearce) and ex-husband Bert Pierce (Brian F. O’Byrne).

Mildred Pierce

I watched this when it was on telly, and it was brilliant. Well deserved award for Kate Winslet. I bought the dvd for my mum as a present as she did not have the channel it was showing on. My mum had seen the orginal film with Joan Crawford and said it was a really good story. It captured the era really well, showing how hard work can pay off and how circumstances can change things sometimes for the best. It had sadness, happiness and drama. A good combination and well worth a look. Excellent acting from all involved. I will be buying this for myself also as I am sure it is one of those dvd's that you can watch over. Fully recommended.
