Olive Kitteridge - Season 2
- Seasons: 1
Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, North Country) and Academy Award® nominee Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, Six Feet Under) star in the four-part HBO Miniseries drama Olive Kitteridge, a film by Academy Award®-nominated director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right, Laurel Canyon). Based on Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name and written by Emmy®-winner Jane Anderson (The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom, Normal), Olive Kitteridge tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny, and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. The story, which spans 25 years, focuses on Olive, a middle-school math teacher, and her relationships with her husband Henry (Jenkins), the good-hearted town pharmacist, their son Christopher, who chafes at his mother’s parenting style, and other denizens of their community.
