KATE WINSLET AS MILDRED PIERCE?
We love Kate Winslet, but Joan Crawford’s shoes are not easy to fill. The classic 1945 movie ”Mildred Pierce” is being remade into a five hour miniseries for HBO and Kate’s playing the lead. Naturally, we have reservations about remaking a close-to perfect movie. Fortunately, it will be directed by one of our favorites, Todd Haynes, who’s responsible the exquisite “Far From Heaven” with Julianne Moore. The touching moments, photography, and set decoration, in that period film are unforgettable. Haynes is really the only director we can imagine doing justice to this classic story.
