We just watched the HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge. I have to read the book! Fantastic adaptation, cinematography and acting by Frances McDormand and Richard Jenkins. The entire cast is amazing. A dark view of life and marriage, makes you cherish the light. Bill Murray is fantastic too. I can't speak too highly of this excellent work of art.
