I recently received a lovely press pack for the HBO series Mildred Pierce. I received a vintage hat and a DVD with the first episode of Mildred Pierce, which will air on Sky Atlantic HD on Saturday at 9pm. If you’ve read the book or watched the 1945 film with Joan Crawford you’re going to enjoy this 5-part series.
We’ve had Mad Men, Boardwalk Empire and now we have Mildred Pierce. It’s set in America during depression with Kate Winslet as Mildred Pierce. In the first episode Mildred is looking for a job and what’s interesting is she’s wearing a day dress with a little hat – a look you often see in east London – only with makeup that is slightly more modern.
