The limited series is created and written by Brad Ingelsby (Out of the Furnace, The Way Back), with all episodes directed by Craig Zobel (Z for Zachariah, The Hunt).

It's set in a small Pennsylvania town where everyone knows everyone's business. Winslet portrays Mare, a local cop celebrated more for her high school basketball accomplishments than her police work. When a body turns up, she has to work with a fellow detective, played by Evan Peters, to figure out what went down – all while her personal life is disintegrating and her past begins to catch up with her.

Mare of Easttown review


Finder was lucky enough to have two staff attend the Australian premiere of Mare of Easttown, held in the heritage-listed Cremorne Orpheum theatre in Sydney.

Finder's global streaming publisher Aaron McAllister said: "While the first episode was somewhat slow in building the story, the second episode had me hooked. I was already theorising who was behind the crime after it ended on a cliffhanger.

"If you enjoy TV series like The Following or The Undoing then you'll likely really enjoy the murder whodunnit that is Mare of Easttown. There's only seven episodes in total and although they're an hour long I'm very curious to see how they can fit all the drama in over the final five episodes."

Finder's streaming editor James Dampney had these thoughts after the screening: "The show faces the common issue new series tend to have of trying to overcome a slow pace while it introduces a bunch of characters and establishes some plotlines.

"But by the end of the second episode, the audience was gasping and everyone in the theatre was clearly pining for more. With its excellent acting and some juicy twists, we expect this to be a big hit for BINGE along the lines of The Undoing."

Mare of Easttown looks like the perfect watch for crime enthusiasts. Even if you're tired of the troubled cop trope, we're sure that Winslet's presence is reason enough to make you want to give it a go. In fact, everyone is praising her performance.

"Winslet is in stunning form as the put upon but never downtrodden cop and matriarch, and it's a role which suits her amazing ability to simultaneously dominate the screen with a character," one critic writes. Mare of Easttown currently has a 92% score on Rotten Tomatoes, which easily translates to must-see TV.
