"The murder of a young woman shakes the small town of Easttown, Pennsylvania. Police officer Mare Sheehan is tasked with solving the crime, and in the process, she must face her own past."
"A gripping story that reveals hidden things layer by layer and doesn't let you go; a multitude of intersecting conflicts, lifelines and dramas; appropriately interesting main as well as supporting characters in an excellent cast; finally, a direction and a script that, within a closed fictional cosmos, give the actors room to unfold and cast a spell over the audience in the miniseries that the American pay channel HBO has put on with Oscar winner Winslet at its center."
FAZ, Ursula Scheer May 21, 2021
"For Winslet, this transformation may have been the appeal of her role. She plays Mare as a literal walking tour de force, with a dragging gait and permanently sprained ankles that hurt just to watch. Every blow of fate suffered shows up somewhere on the protagonist's body, every disappointment pushes out. None of her tics, however, seem gimmicky, no gesture wasted. Instead, Winslet's performance is among the best of a long legendary career."
