Hobbies – Four Reasons to Watch “Mare of Easttown” with Kate Winslet

Easttown, a small town in Pennsylvania, is struck by the murder of Erin, a seventeen-year-old mother of a little boy. Mare Sheehan, a damaged detective, torn by her demons between a deceased son and a disappearance that she cannot resolve, will investigate to find the culprit.

Here are four reasons to watch this original HBO series broadcast in France on the OCS platform.

1. A well-crafted thriller

Even if at first glance the start of the series seems seen and seen again, “Mare of Easttown”, signed by Brad Ingelsby and directed by Craig Zobel, takes viewers on board in this small town in Pennsylvania.

The series brings together all the ingredients that make the success of good detective stories: a search for the truth in which straightforward culprits and false leads intermingle and a tension that holds on until the last minutes of the denouement.

2. Kate Winslet

Then, “Mare of Easttown” is also the talent of Kate Winslet who holds the main role. Ten years after “Mildred Pierce”, the Englishwoman is back on the small screen. “Impeccable” for Télérama, “eloquent mastery of the role” for the Walt Street Journal … the actress excels in this role of cop losing her footing in her personal life and clinging to her work as best she can.

The supporting roles are also very important like Colin Zabel (Evan Peters) the teammate of Mare; Lori Ross (Julianne Nicholson), her best friend or Richard Ryan (Guy Pearce), her lover.

3. Approved by Stephen King

Among fans of the series, novelist Stephen King, undisputed master of horror, took to the game and commented on the series on social media, sharing his theories on the identity of the culprit.

For the record, and without revealing the outcome, the author of “Shining” was right. But shhh, we’re not saying anything.

4. Very good ratings on HBO

“Mare of Easttown” broke an audience record. According to HBO, the miniseries finale is the most viewed original series episode to date within 24 hours of its launch. The last episode, broadcast on May 30 in the United States, would have gathered no less than 4 million fans.

Will the craze for this mini-series lead to a second season? In any case, Kate Winslet declared that she would love “absolutely to play Mare again”… To be continued!

Mare of Easttown. 7 episodes. Available in France on OCS.
