Mildred Pierce brings to life the memorable character introduced in James M. Cain's classic 1941 novel. The five-part drama offers 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, as well as the complex relationships she shares with the indolent men in her life. The miniseries also stars Guy Pearce, James LeGros, Melissa Leo, Brian F. O'Byrne and Evan Rachel Woods.
Review: Fabulous performances from Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce and Evan Racel Wood, this remake does a great job modernising the 1945 version.
