Storyline

Glendale, California, 1931: Mildred Pierce, a young mother with a talent for baking, is left a "grass widow" after throwing her husband, Bert, out of the house. Forced to hunt for work to support herself and her two young daughters, 11-year-old Veda and seven-year-old Ray, Mildred visits an employment agency, only to encounter job opportunities she feels are beneath her. Amidst her job search, she receives dating advice from her friend and neighbor, Lucy Gessler, and begins an unexpected affair with an ex-business partner of her husband's, Wally Burgan. When Mildred receives a call from the agency regarding an opening as a housekeeper to a wealthy socialite, she reluctantly agrees to meet with her. After cutting the acerbic interview short, Mildred seeks refuge at a local diner, Cristofor's Café, where fate, and a waitress named Ida, will play a role in shaping her future.

Visually perfect.
6 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Never saw the Joan Crawford version, so I can't compare, but visually, this film is flawless. The colors, the props, the costumes, the HATS, the makeup. Evan Rachel Wood is probably a little too skinny for a woman of that era, but other than that - visually perfect.

Emotionally exhausting (in a good way). Kate Winslet must have been worn out by the end of this film. She was amazing. I can't even imagine working that hard. Beautiful and amazing.

I fast forwarded through maybe 2 moments that were a little long but not because they lacked emotion - every moment was pretty dang perfect

  • but because I am short on time.




What a great piece of directing, what great acting - Melissa Leo sounded like she had been lifted from the era - her phrasing was flawless - reminded me of how my grandmother used to talk.

Everyone who likes period drama should see this film.
