Limited Series
Mare of Easttown

Critics Consensus

Grounded by a career-best Kate Winslet, Mare of Easttown's ambitions at times exceed its reach, but its central mystery is supported by such strong sense of place and character it hardly matters.

Critic Reviews for Mare of Easttown Limited Series

All Critics (78) | Top Critics (39)

For a work about a neglected corner of America, there's none of the sneering critique of Hillbilly Elegy or the ludicrous rivalries of Ozark. Instead, Mare of Easttown is just a subtle, textured portrait of a place where some people are suffering.

Apr 22, 2021 | Full Review…

The acting -- by Winslet and the strong ensemble around her -- is compelling enough to make it all feel more tragic than soapy, more complex than overcooked.

Apr 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Thus is the power of a great cast (courtesy of casting director Avy Kaufman) given a meticulous world to play in; credit to Ingelsby, who grew up in the area, and Zobel, for knowing what details to hone in on without overindulging.

Apr 16, 2021 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

Winslet is the show. Her performance is fascinating - powerful, but she never overpowers it. It's a difficult task to make someone want to watch you suffer.

Apr 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Winslet is good in this "Broadchurch''-meets-"The Killing"-meets-"True Detective"-meets-"Top of the Lake." Otherwise, same-old-same-old.

Apr 15, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Winslet elevates everything, but "Mare of Easttown" needs some serious elevating out of its dreariness and familiarity. It's certainly watchable but also predictable. Look elsewhere for light.

Apr 15, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

Kate Winslet bares herself of all the glamour and movie star glitz to portray this woman. When she accepted this role, she checked her vanity at the door.

Apr 16, 2021 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

I like almost everything about this hero, from the nuanced and thoroughly engaging performance of Kate Winslet to the sociology of gender, social class, family, small-town policing and sports that is richly explored through this troubled character.

May 10, 2021 | Full Review…

HBO's latest prestige crime procedural, Mare of Easttown, scratches the itch for gritty, well-produced drama, neatly filling the hole left by other offerings like True Detective but with a much-needed tweak.

May 10, 2021 | Full Review…

HBO's Mare of Easttown is constructed around a familiar, virtually surefire plot: a shocking crime in a small town leads to an investigation that ultimately reveals every major local scandal in an astoundingly errant community. And it works.

May 7, 2021 | Full Review…

Kate Winslet may be the star, but it's the ensemble here that makes her new murder mystery series stand out from those that are pure logic puzzles or that focus strictly on killers or detectives.

May 4, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

On the Granger Gauge of 1 to 10, "Mare of Easttown" is an intriguing 8.

    Brilliant show. Its a must see.
  • 5d ago
    Very good. Could have been amazing with some small tweaks, but it's still very good. Writers try to make the a complex protagonist, but I think they miss on personality and character inconsistencies. Other than that, it moves fast, strong plot, amazing supporting cast (I actually like the supporting cast better than Kate Winslet's acting... ) and overall a very worthwhile watch.
  • 5d ago
    Best Series of 2021. Kate Winslet is the best.
  • 6d ago
    I will apply an official note only at the end of the season. The first 3 episodes are fantastic
  • 6d ago
    Kate is at her superb best. Always amazing and fantastic in this series despite her sucking on a vape thing. All actors are great. Although 'we've seen it all before' storyline each episode leaves with a cliffhanger asking yourself maybe the conclusion won't be so cliché after all. I liken the series to the Danish series 'The Unit' which is one of my forever favorite series.Along with 'The Eagles' both must sees if you have never. Mare is my top pick for a very long time. The gruesome scenes not for the faint hearted but we must remember whenever we are watching the big screen or telly we are being entertained not informed if we are on the entertainment viewing platforms
