HBO has released the first full trailer for Olive Kitteridge (the teaser was here), based on Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize winning novel of the same title. It's a portrait of the coastal town of Crosby, Maine, which like all tales of sleepy New England hamlets, is full of secrets, illicit sex, crime, and tragedy. The film, directed by The Kids Are All Right's Lisa Cholodenko, is told from the gimlet-eyed perspective of its protagonist played here by Frances McDormand, a junior high school math teacher. Her husband Henry, played by Richard Jenkins is the town pharmacist. Bill Murray and Zoe Kazan are also part of the cast. The four-part mini-series airs in two parts on November 2 and 3. »

McDormand doesn’t mince her words, whether talking to an innocent little girl or a depressed Bill Murray, who asks for a reason to live as he grieves the death of his wife. “Don’t have a clue,” McDormand’s titular character says. “I’m waiting for the dog to die so I can shoot myself.”
The movie earned rave reviews, including one from Variety critic Peter Debruge, when it premiered at the Venice Film Festival last month.
The four-part series runs on HBO from November 2 to November 3, with two installments airing each night.

In the new trailer for HBO's miniseries Olive Kitteridge, Frances McDormand doles out blunt dialogue as the titular character. Throughout the trailer one can see how Olive's age changes over the course of the miniseries, which is adapted from Elizabeth Strout's novel. "I just want to say one thing," Olive tells a group of school children. "Don't be scared of your hunger. If you're scared of your hunger you're one more ninny just like everyone else." When Bill Murray's character tells an older-looking Olive to give him "a reason to wake up in the morning," revealing that his wife died, »

HBO continues to challenge theatrically-released cinema with its roster of compelling small screen serials. Its upcoming “special two-part miniseries”, Olive Kitteridge, aims to maintain their winning streak. In fact, their faith in the success of the show is such that it was granted a screening in its entirety at the Venice Film Festival.
Set across four episodes, the show’s story stretches over 25 years and is told through the experiences of a small New England town and its residents. Headlining the show in the titular role is Frances McDormand, as Kitteridge. She’s a spot-on piece of casting if the trailer is an honest indicator of what to expect. In fact, the whole cast are practically an assembly of my favourite actors. If Kitteridge is the centre of the show’s universe, then Bill Murray and Richard Jenkins are in close orbit. The three of them trade off each other »

HBO has released the first Olive Kitteridge trailer for director Lisa Cholodenko’s (The Kids Are All Right) miniseries adaptation of author Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The story focuses on a retired schoolteacher (Frances McDormand) and the characters that surround her, as the various tales of affairs, suicide, and emotional problems in her small Maine town are told through her eyes. McDormand looks to be quite incredible here as the titular lead, and Cholodenko appears to do a swell job of balancing the darkly funny and dramatic tone. Everything about this looks great, from the cinematography to the supporting cast, and I can’t wait to dive into the four-hour story next month. Hit the jump to watch the Olive Kitteridge trailer and to check out the poster. The miniseries also stars Richard Jenkins, Bill Murray, John Gallagher Jr., Peter Mullan, Rosemarie DeWitt, Zoe Kazan, Jesse Plemons, and Rachel Brosnahan. »

We've said it before and we'll keep saying it—the line between TV and movies is continuing to blur, and we don't really care, as long as great stories are being told. Earlier this year, the HBO miniseries "Olive Kitteridge" screened in full at the Venice Film Festival, and why not? The talent is all top shelf, with Lisa Cholodenko directing a cast that includes Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Richard Jenkins, Zoe Kazan and more. Now a brand new trailer is here in advance of its small screen bow. Based on the book by Elizabeth Strout, this is a four-part series that spans 25 years in the lives of residents of a small town. Here's the official synopsis: Olive Kitteridge tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive, whose »
