Frances McDormand Is Everything in This Olive Kitteridge Trailer


HBO has released the first full trailer for Olive Kitteridge (the teaser was here), based on Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize–winning novel of the same title. It's a portrait of the coastal town of Crosby, Maine, which like all tales of sleepy New England hamlets, is full of secrets, illicit sex, crime, and tragedy. The film, directed by The Kids Are All Right's Lisa Cholodenko, is told from the gimlet-eyed perspective of its protagonist, played here by Frances McDormand, a junior-high-school math teacher. Her husband, Henry, played by Richard Jenkins, is the town pharmacist. Bill Murray and Zoe Kazan are also part of the cast. The four-part mini-series airs in two parts on November 2 and 3.
