MARE OF EASTTOWN
Creator: Brad Inglesby
Starring: Kate Winslet, Jean Smart, Evan Peters, Guy Pearce, Julianne Nicholson, David Denman
Kate Winslet and Guy Pearce won rave reviews for the HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce in 2011. They’ve now reunited ten years later for the new HBO limited series, Mare of Eastown. Winslet stars as the title character, Mare Sheehan. She’s the detective sergeant in the small community of Easttown, Pennsylvania. It’s been one year since the disappearance of young girl. All eyes are on Mare who hasn’t cracked the case yet and pressure is building. Her home life is crumbling as her ex-husband is set to be remarried, she’s the primary caregiver of her grandson, and her mother, played by Jean Smart, is full of opinions. If life wasn’t already complicated, the body a high school girl is found in a nearby creek. The two crimes seem to be unrelated but it’s another tragic event for this small community. It airs Sundays on HBO and is also streaming on HBO Max.
