Mildred Pierce is a five-part miniseries that first aired on HBO on March 27, 2011. Adapted from
James M. Cain's 1941 novel, it was directed by Todd Haynes, and starred Kate Winslet in the
title role, alongside Guy Pearce, Evan Rachel Wood, and Melissa Leo. Carter Burwell wrote
the original score for the miniseries.
It is the second adaptation of the novel, after the 1945 film noir produced by Warner Bros. and
starring Joan Crawford.
Further information: Mildred Pierce
Mildred Pierce depicts an overprotective, self-sacrificing mother during the Great Depression who finds
herself separated from her husband, opening a restaurant of her own and falling in love with a new man,
all the while trying to earn her narcissistic daughter's love and respect. The miniseries follows Cain's
original novel exactly, dramatizing nearly every scene and dispensing with the murder subplot which was
added for the 1945 film. The dialogue is almost entirely taken word-for-word from the novel.
