Mildred Pierce

Who can resist?
I tuned in for every episode (which may have contributed
to the lack of weekend blog posts) and I loved it!

Starring Acadamy award winner...Kate Winslet as Mildred Pierce.

and the beautiful Evan Rachel Wood as Veda Pierce.

Set in 1920-1930's in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

About a mother's struggles with raising her two daughters on her own...

finding love...

and overcoming heartache.

It was truly a remarkable five part mini-series that had it's final show this past Sunday night.
If you missed it, I highly recommend watching it On Demand if you already have HBO.
If you don't, I advise you to buy it. It does have the usual racy scenes that are trademark of
an HBO show, but nothing too bad.

I applaud Kate Winslet for taking on this role...she outdid herself! Not many can fill the
shoes of the notorious Joan Crawford.

Great job HBO!!

  2. I saw the original version with Joan Crawford and loved it. We recently gave up HBO so I think I am going to buy it!


  3. Some of my friends are raving about it too...
    but I haven't watched any episodes...
    too busy:)
    I'll wait for the DVD to come out.Although I still haven't finished watching Boardwalk Empire.

  4. Hi Natalie...I hope you are doing well.
    Such a sad, but hopeful little flick... I remember watching the Joan Crawford version with my grandmother.It looks like the HBO version is well filmed. I love Kate Winslett. I'll have to check it out when it comes out on DVD as I do not have HBO.
    {with love}

  5. Looking forward to seeing this one!!

  6. Hello, sweet Natalie. I am going to have to buy this series as I don't have cable. I've seen the original Joan Crawford film though. I adore Kate (and Joan Crawford) and most movies set in the 20s/30s. Easily one of my favorite eras. Thanks for sharing!
