I know this is gay sacrilege, but just between us, I’m not a huge fan of Mildred Pierce.
Yes, I’ve watched it from beginning to end. Several times. It just doesn’t do much for me.

Anyway, I’d heard there was a remake in the works for Mildred Pierce. What I hadn’t heard was that it’s been directed by genius director (and occasional acquaintance) Todd “Superstar” Haynes. And it features Kate Winslet, whom I’ve liked ever since Heavenly Creatures, with a brief interlude around Titanic, not because she was bad, but because it was a comic book, and I like my comic books animated, thank you.
The trailer also gives me hope:
