TV Review: HBO’s ‘Mildred Pierce’ (2011)
As the Academy Awards approached, there wasn't a lot of suspense about where the best-actor and best-picture trophies would wind up; Ray Milland and The Lost Weekend looked like shoo-ins. The best-actress competition, however, was a horse race. The general consensus was that Joan Crawford probably deserved the Oscar for her portrayal of Mildred Pierce in the film of the same name, but three of the other nominated actresses—Ingrid Bergman, Jennifer Jones, and Gene Tierney—seemed more likely to win. The films those three women starred in were sunnier particularly Bergman's The Bells of St. Mary's , and the actresses themselves were better-liked. Crawford was arrogant, overmannered, and difficult to work with. Arrogant she may have been; stupid she was not.
Just because Evan Rachel Wood goes full frontal in the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce , don't start expecting to see some hot raunchy sex scenes to go along with it. The entire series is seen through the eyes of Mildred, played by Kate Winslet , you see. So any of the assumed sexual relations between's Wood's character Mildred's opera singer daughter Veda and her mom's lover, Monty played by Guy Pearce , have been left to our imaginations. Yes, Mildred's lover has an affair with her own daughter. Not that the full-frontal scene in which Veda walks across a room butt naked in front of her mother after being caught with Monty in bed together isn't stirring enough. This Depression-era story isn't supposed to be filled with rainbows and unicorns. In one scene, Veda cuts Mildred down with a verbal assault that seethes with pure evil.
Evan Rachel Wood has credited Kate Winslet with helping her to overcome her fear of appearing nude on camera. The actress, who worked with Winslet on the HBO miniseries Mildred Pierce , told Fancast that she was apprehensive about baring all for the film but was encouraged by her co-star to rise to the challenge. Trust me, it's so brave. Put a merkin on and you'll be fine'. Wood continued: "She gave me strength. She kind of dared me.

Mildred & Veda
Fidelity may be a buttress of marriage, but it is sometimes a burden on film adaptations. The Hollywood version compressed the Depression-era drama into a soapy s murder mystery. Mildred Pierce is a housewife in Glendale, Calif. Her husband, a failed real estate developer, walks out, leaving Mildred a grass widow with no income besides the money she makes baking pies for neighbors. The music and the rich cinematography also do justice to the era, and exacting attention is paid to the smallest period details, from the thick, mottled window panes in a Spanish-style bungalow to the square stop signs on two-lane roads to the beach.
