Summary
An intimate portrait of a uniquely independent woman who finds herself newly divorced during the Depression years and struggles to carve out a new life for herself and her family. The story explores Mildred's unreasonable devotion to her insatiable daughter Veda, as well as the complex relationship she shares with the indolent men in her life, including her polo-playing lover Monty Beragon and ex-husband Bert Pierce
Awards note
Winner of 5 Emmy Awards: including Kate Winslet, Best Actress in a miniseries ; Guy Pearce, Best supporting actor in a miniseries.
