I just finished watching this mini-series Mildred Pierce. I've been wanting to see it for awhile now - in part because I will see anything with Kate Winslet and another is because it kept winning awards.
I don't normally go in for straight drama, but this story is pretty sordid. It felt like a Soap Opera withincredible acting.
Also, 1930s dress and pitch perfect 30s dialogue was mesmerizing - it was like a step back in time.
The relationships in this film are complex and subtle. The acting is actually quite superb and I think enhance the story with a nuance that wouldn't be present with lesser actors. I really loved it.
