Mildred Pierce

I decided to check out the HBO miniseries which stars Kate Winslet in the role Joan Crawford made famous. It’s based on the James M. Cain novel about a single mother during the great depression who is raising two daughters while trying to run her own business and her older daughter starts giving her major problems. It’s really a tremendous piece of work. The acting, production values, music of the period are all spot on. I highly recommend it.

James M. Cain was one of the best crime novelists of his day. He wrote great stories about believable characters. The Postman Always Rings Twice is one of his more famous tales. I came in late to the series but was able to catch up. If you missed the first 3 episodes, I am sure they will repeat them or they will be on Netflix in a few months.
