Kate Winslet on Building Her ‘Mare of Easttown’ Character and Not Being ‘A Fraud’

Even after winning an Oscar and an Emmy, Kate Winslet is still afraid of “fucking up.”. “I’m just like, if I don’t do the fucking homework, I’m going to be outed as a fraud. And so I better just keep doing it as much as possible so that I’ve got the fattest safety net. That’s my thing,” Winslet said in the Variety Streaming Room, presented by HBO.

Why ‘Mare of Easttown’ Excels by Focusing on Motherhood, Not Crime

‘Mare of Easttown’ Review: Kate Winslet Turns HBO’s Riveting Mystery Into a Great Character Drama

“Mare of Easttown” contains at least two complementary shows, both deeply satisfying. One is an absorbing character drama about Mare Sheehan (Kate Winslet) and the denizens of Easttown, Pennsylvania. Mare, an exquisitely Irish name for a woman who’s stubborn, guarded, and nonetheless charming, is a former town patron who’s on the verge of becoming a pariah. Decades removed from her high school basketball heroics, she’s a divorced detective who been unable to close a missing person’s case. One friend has already turned against her, and the locals’ agitation only grows when another young girl turns up dead.

Mare of Easttown Is More Than It Appears to Be

At first, Mare of Easttown looks familiar. The HBO limited series follows an attempt to solve the murder of a young woman and the possibly related disappearances of two others, a plot that’s played out on television more times than can be counted. Its protagonist is a traumatized police detective who pushes boundaries to get to the bottom of the case, a type that’s figured into such crime stories since practically forever. The show is set in a small Pennsylvania town whose modest brick homes, lined up in neat rows, chimney after chimney, are among the first images that appear in episode one, which begins in the azure light of a brisk winter day as the sun slowly rises. Immediately, you feel the sense of melancholy embedded in the cellular makeup of this close-knit, working-class hamlet. That mood, mixed with all those other elements, evokes a number of recent and semi-recent series, including Happy Valley, Top of the Lake, Sharp Objects, and Clarice.
