Last night HBO debuted their version of the classic film, Mildred Pierce. Not quite a remake of the original (1945, starring Joan Crawford), director Todd Haynes takes the more in-depth approach into the life of a working mother in the 30’s and the tumultuous relationship with her sociopathically-ungrateful daughter.
Academy award winning actresses; whip-smart script; fantastic costuming–this one is a must-see! In the meantime, here’s a glimpse at how knit & crochet were represented in the 1st parts, of the 5-part miniseries.
