Mildred Pierce - Season 2
- Seasons: 1
She gave her daughter everything. But everything was not enough. Mildred Pierce brings the memorable characters introduced in James M. Cain’s classic 1941 novel of pride and privilege in the middle class to life. Starring acclaimed actress Kate Winslet (Oscar®-winner for The Reader) in the title role, and co-written and directed by iconic filmmaker Todd Haynes (Oscar®-nominated for his screenplay Far from Heaven), 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 drama explores Mildred’s unreasonable devotion to her insatiable daughter Veda (played by Evan Rachel Wood in the latter Parts), as well as the complex relationships she shares with the indolent men in her life, including her polo-playing lover Monty Beragon (Guy Pearce) and ex-husband Bert Pierce (Brían F. O’Byrne).
