pull up your bootstraps


I mentioned yesterday that watching Mildred Pierce was a highlight of my weekend.  I mean that in every way.  I hadn't given the show much thought until I heard the NPR interview, which left me curious.  I'm so glad I gave it a chance, because it's really stuck, leaving me eager for more.

Kate Winslet is incredible as Mildred Pierce.  The character suits her well, not to mention she looks rather beautiful in her 1930s get-up.  The story is captivating, empowering and tragic.  One that grips you with lust, pride and a mix of other emotions, and then jolts you back to reality in an instant.

I'm feeling quite determined now, ready to pull up my bootstraps and make my goals a reality.

Needless to say, I'm intrigued and I'll be back for more.  Have you seen it or plan on watching it?

I recently saw a commercial for it, and love Kate Winslet already so was planning to check it out eventually. But now that you've recommended it too, I'll move a little faster on that!

It's on my list of must-watch's, but John's affection for Walker, Texas Ranger has made it hard to introduce any new shows!

I'm wondering whether there is any connection with the Mildred Pierce movie from 1945 starring Joan Crawford. I loved that one and I'm also curious about this one. Kate is truly a talented actress. Ada

When did this movie come out? I totally missed it? And is that Johnnie Depp? Seems impossible I'd miss out on a Johnnie Depp movie!
