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.

Mildred Pierce 2011 miniseries
18 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was totally into the miniseries. However I felt that the ending was awful. What kind of ending was that? I enjoyed the original with Joan Crawford and was expecting to see a finale that was similar. There should have been at least 2 more episodes, and see a different ending to Mildred and Veda's love hate relationship. Again, it felt as if there was something missing in the last episode. Truly disappointing. So in the end, Veda has the last word? and what happened to Monty? It felt as if a piece of the entire puzzle were missing. However I truly enjoyed all the actors. They were into their respective parts. But whoever re-wrote the script was asleep...
