HBO Olive Kitteridge Miniseries trailer

HBO has released a trailer for Lisa Cholodenko‘s Olive Kitteridge miniseries starring Frances McDormand (Fargo) and Richard Jenkins (The Visitor). The Kids Are All Right filmmaker helms this four-part miniseries adaptation of Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name, about “the poignantly sweet, acerbically funny and devastatingly tragic story of a seemingly placid New England town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive, whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center.” Frances plays Olive and Richard Jenkins portrays her husband, Henry. Watch the 30-second HBO Olive Kitteridge miniseries trailer embedded after the jump.
