(Michael Curtiz, 1945)
See this noir-meets-woman’s-film as you’ve never seen it before in a new restoration from the camera negative. Single mom Mildred Pierce (Joan Crawford) works herself to the bone to establish a successful restaurant, all to support her two daughters. How about even a “thank you” from her eldest, Veda (Ann Marie Blyth)? Both actresses deliver tour-de-force performances, earning Crawford an Oscar for best actress and Blyth a nomination. (111 mins., 4K DCP)
Restored by the Criterion Collection.
