|Still from Mildred Pierce|
HBO's Mildred Pierce will be premiering in the U.S. on March 27, 2011, though its Canadian Premiere Date has yet to be confirmed. The eagerly awaited five-part Mini-series stars the amazing Kate Winslet in the Lead Role made famous originally by Joan Crawford in 1945.
Instead of studying Crawford's performance, Winslet made sure not to watch the original Film Adaption of James M. Cain's Novel in order to stay true to the original story as much as possible. Mildred Pierce is about a Woman who finds financial wealth during The Great Depression after becoming a Restauranteur. She finds that her upward mobility causes strains in her relationship with her spoiled Daughter Veda (Evan Rachel Wood).
