Academy Award(R) winner Frances McDormand (Fargo, North Country) and Academy Award(R) nominee Richard Jenkins (The Visitor, HBO's Six Feet Under) star in the HBO miniseries drama Olive Kitteridge, a film by Academy Award(R)-nominated director Lisa Cholodenko (The Kids Are All Right, Laurel Canyon). Based on Elizabeth Strout's Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name and written by Emmy(R)-winner Jane Anderson (HBO's The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader-Murdering Mom and Normal), this four-part drama tells the story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. Executive produced by Academy Award(R) winners Tom Hanks and Frances McDormand, and Emmy(R)-winners Jane Anderson and Gary Goetzman.
