HBO's Mildred Pierce: A Good Review!

HBO's Mildred Pierce: A Good Review!

Joan Crawford must be rolling because Todd Haynes has apparently done a solid job in adapting Mildred Pierce into a five-hour HBO miniseries that will premiere on March 27.

In the below review, cultural critic Brendan Lemon says he liked Kate Winslet in the title role--she's right for it, and has the time to flesh it out--and he also gives thumbs up to Brian F. O'Byrne as thoroughly modern Mildred's first husband.

Plus Lemon sprinkles in comments about Mare Winningham ("a winning ham"), "Oscar F-bomber Melissa Leo," and Even Rachael Wood as the vicious daughter.

She must be so mean because of her awful experience with Spider-Man!
