Audience Reviews for Olive Kitteridge: Miniseries

  • Sep 11, 2018
    Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins give their best as usual, but it can't be a good sign that the most (only) fascinating character in this uneven, confused miniseries (played by Cory Michael Smith) simply disappears without any explanation after serving no well-defined purpose.

    Very slow burn... but in the end, it pays off. Oh boy, it really pays off. Frances McDormand is a force of nature. Amazing performance by almost everyone. Highly recommended. You just gotta be patient and enjoy every frame of it.

    Olive Kitteridge is realist in the best way: not merely as a decoration scheme, or cinema's equivalent of the vintage Instagram filter, but as an organic element of the story. These four transporting hours tell a touching, funny, heartbreaking story that underscores how complex life is, how fragile human interactions are.

    Immensely powerful, insightful and poignant observation of those lives revolving around a clinical depression patient and how they witness and deal with the helplessness of the situation.

    Sublime, come quasi tutte le regie al femminile. E quattro ore passano come quaranta minuti.
  • Sep 22, 2015
    Frances McDormand is THE best actress working today!
