Kate Winslet - Kate Winslet Wins Over Critics As Mildred Pierce


Kate Winslet has wowed critics in her Hbo series debut.
Kate Winslet, the British actress usually known for her big screen parts, has taken up the title role in the new Hbo mini-series 'Mildred Pierce,' which will premiere on April 3.
As reported by Hollywood Today, critics attended a Hbo screening in Los Angeles yesterday, with a Q and A session with the show's producers and the actors. Based on the 1941 James M. Cain film starring Joan Crawford, Winslet plays Pierce, a mother raising her two daughters against the backdrop of 1930s Depression. Her performance has been almost universally praised, with the New York Times calling her 'an amazing actress, capable of showing every nuance of feeling.'
Evan Rachel Wood who stars opposite the actress as teenage daughter Veda, was quick to heap praise on her co-star. Speaking to Associated Press she said of Winslet 'She's just brilliant. She's my favourite actress and I've wanted to work with her forever. I was tearing up when I first got to meet her.' Speaking about Winslet's challenge with such a difficult role: 'I don't know how she got through this. She had such a massive thing to tackle and she never broke or complained.'
