Olive Kitteridge portrays a town wrought with illicit affairs, crime and tragedy, told through the lens of Olive (Academy Award® winner Frances McDormand), whose wicked wit and harsh demeanor mask a warm but troubled heart and staunch moral center. The story, which spans 25 years, focuses on Olive, a middle-school math teacher, and her relationships with her husband Henry (Academy Award® nominee Richard Jenkins), the good-hearted town pharmacist; their son Christopher (John Gallagher, Jr. from HBO’s The Newsroom), who chafes at his mother’s parenting style; and other denizens of their community.
