What mysteries does this little town hold? Watch Mare of Easttown and get your answers.
Why should you watch Mare of Easttown?
The series starts slowly and drags a little in the first few episodes. The first four episodes take longer to build up than the last three. It is done, however, to draw viewers into the storyline by letting them know who the characters are and how they will evolve for the series.
The series' most valuable asset, though, is its cast. It's always a pleasure to see Kate Winslet on the big screen. It's amazing how effectively she balances everything out. The series benefits from Jean Smart's performance as Mare's mother, who provides both emotional resonance and surprising hilarity. The remainder of the ensemble, including Angourie Rice, Julianne Nicholson, Joe Tippett, and others, is fantastic, and they manage to flourish in each episode while the town is engulfed in mystery.
The show was further enhanced by the magnificent, unnerving cinematography. The small-town atmosphere is brilliantly recreated, and everyone is properly cast in their roles. Many characters in the series have a fragility that may appear dismal, as well as how the characters connect feels genuine, making the entire series realistic.
Also, the series is highly unpredictable; it will always prove your assumptions wrong, keeping you on your toes. Overall, this series is about comprehending the ideas of compassion, grieving, and letting go, rather than being just a whodunnit mystery. As a result, it is a must-see.
