Review of Olive Kitteridge

30 minutes

"Olive Kitteridge" (2008) is a novel by American author Elizabeth Strout. HBO is producing a mini-series based on the novel, that will feature Frances McDormand in the title role and is slated to air in November 2014. The four-part drama tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive, whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. Richard Jenkins portrays Olive's husband, Henry.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

The show is as good as the book! Well actually, I read the book because I loved the show. I would recommend anyone who has the patience for slow drama to watch it. The actors have done a fabulous job! I could also be biased towards the show since I am basically Olive (in 20 years); but it is a simple and well told story.
