Mildred Pierce (PG)

Joan Crawford in Mildred Pierce

Joan Crawford gives one of her most iconic – and her only Academy Award-winning – performances as Mildred Pierce in this quintessential film noir.

What Veda (Ann Blythe) wants, her mother Mildred Pierce (Joan Crawford) provides. Even if Mildred must end her middle-class marriage, climb atop the male-dominated business world and marry a wealthy man she doesn't love. 'I'll do anything,' Mildred says in explaining her love for her daughter. But does anything include murder?

 In the midst of a police investigation after the death of her second husband, Mildred must evaluate her own freedom and her complicated relationship with her daughter.
