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). [show more]

Kate Winslet stars as the title character in this five-part drama mini-series adapted from the 1941 novel by James M. Cain. Living in Glendale, California, during the Great Depression, middle-class housewife Mildred Pierce finds herself a single mother after separating from her cheating husband, Bert (Brian F. O'Byrne). To keep house and support her daughters she is forced to find work and, despite there being few job opportunities, she manages to get a position as a waitress. Mildred's eldest daughter, Veda (Morgan Turner/Evan Rachel Wood), who is used to her middle-class upbringing, disapproves of her mother's job. In an effort to make a better life for herself, Mildred opens up her own restaurant, embarks on a new relationship with wealthy playboy Monty (Guy Pearce) and tries to win Veda's affections.
