Starring Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins, Olive Kitteridge tells the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy. Adapting Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, the four-part mini-series is directed by Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right) and produced by Tom Hanks’ Playtone. Olive Kitteridge is the fifth collaboration between Playtone and HBO in what has become a wonderfully fruitful partnership, catch the first two parts on November 2nd and the final two installments the following day, both at 9pm on HBO.
