About Mildred Pierce
Mildred Pierce is directed and written by Academy Award® Nominee Todd Hayes (Far From Heaven, I'm Not There)) and is based on the 1941 classic novel by James M. Cain. HBO's adaptation features an all-star cast including Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce, James Legros, Melissa Leo, Brían F. O'Byrne and Evan Rachel Wood.
Academy Award® Winner Kate Winslet plays the downtrodden, suburban heroine Mildred who strives to keep her family in the style to which she aspires. When things don't go according to plan, middle class Mildred is forced into a dreary waitressing job in a local diner, having spent too many years playing housewife to have concentrated on acquiring a 'skill set.'
The drama offers an intimate and inspirational portrait of a uniquely independent woman in post-depression America.
