10, 15, 20 years from now when your kids or grandkids talk to you about this dark period in U.S. history, they are not going to ask you how did you feel, they are going to ask you, what did you do? #FamiliesBelongTogether #AbolishIce

Novelist Stephen King, reviewing Mildred Pierce for The Daily Beast and Newsweek, praised the acting of Winslet, Pearce and Wood, and admired the show's attention to detail and structure,but complained that the five-hour adaptation was "too damn long".He finishes with, "Winslet’s Mildred is a genuine star turn. How Joan Crawford would have loathed her." The series was shown out of competition at the 68th Venice International Film Festival in 2011. #mildredpierce #katewinslet
Mildred Pierce received generally favorable reviews.

Cain's 1941 novel", it did not "make the most of the mythic clash of mother, lover and ungrateful child", and was "not nearly as satisfying as the 1945 film noir". #katewinslet #mildredpierce #hbo
