Summary

Mildred Pierce

What Veda wants, her mother - Mildred Pierce - provides. Even if Mildred must end her middle-class marriage, climb atop the male-dominated business world and marry a wealthy man she doesn't love. "I'll do anything," Mildred says in explaining her love for her daughter. But does anything include murder? 

From a novel by James M. Cain (The Postman Always Rings Twice, Double Indemnity), Mildred Pierce is a classy murder mystery, a stylish film nor told from a women's point of view. Joan Crawford's Mildred ended a two-year career slump, earned her a Best Actress Academy Award® and revitalized her career. Just when you think you got this nominee for five other Oscars including Best Picture figured out, along comes a shocking twist ending!
