Frances McDormand, you're the best! - Olive Kitteridge: Series review by DW

This has been, by far, the most enjoyable thing I've watch for a very long time. The HBO Miniseries are always of a reliably high standard but it was the starring role of Frances McDormand that appealed to me most. Through all 4 episodes she is in terrific form doing what she so uniquely does best.

Overall, the pace is enjoyably slow & time is taken to build up the characters & their relationships. Big jumps in time occur so it's intriguing to see how certain situations develop over time.

I've given 5 red stars to the 1st three episodes but I'd like to up that to 5 gold stars for episode 4 in which the scenes involving Bill Murray (who plays the part of Jack Kennison) were just the most watchable performances I've seen in ages. If I was an acting contemporary of Frances McDorand or Bill Murray I'd be dead keen to act with them & I'm sure the superlative performances from the other supporting actors creates the synergy that develop between really good actors.

If you don't watch it, you'll kick yourself!

FMcD shines again - Olive Kitteridge: Series review by BE

A quiet and morose production but not without humour. It mainly presents the dynamics between Olive and her husband, Henry. Olive is a harsh person who doesn't suffer fools gladly. She is not kind to her husband (or anybody else comes to that) yet you feel there is a soft and loving person very deep inside but she is never able to bring this to the fore. Henry obviously idolises Olive and tends to take everything she verbally throws at him. Although slow moving, the production holds the attention throughout. Frances McDormand can never do any wrong and in my opinion, is the best female actress in Hollywood today. Richard Jenkins as her husband and Bill Murray (who materialises towards the end) are also very natural and excellent players. I should think this production would possibly appeal more to an older audience but I could well be wrong.
