How ‘Mare of Easttown’ has raised Kate Winslet to the top again

First reason to see Mare of Easttown on HBO: Kate Winslet. The protagonist of the series does a job “neat and credible to unsuspected limits” in her role as Inspector Mare Sheehan, as explained by the expert Lucía Tello. If the production has become a true phenomenon this season, it is not only because of its history and how it is told, it is, in large part, because of it.

An Oscar, an Emmy, a Grammy – three awards that few artists have collected – four Golden Globes, three BAFTAs … Winslet piles up 95 awards and in 2009 she was the youngest actress to get the most nominations from the Hollywood Academy, when he won the statuette for The Reader at 33 years old. She was competing with Meryl Streep, Melissa Leo, Anne Hathaway, and Angelina Jolie.

With a talent more than demonstrated, the name of the British continues to be related on numerous occasions with the description of an actress who has aged poorly. And those comments do not refer to his work in front of the camera, but to his physique.

Part of his (personal) greatness is that he overcame all his fears and insecurities. Those comments don’t even touch him anymore. This is precisely why, in part, in Mare of Easttown It has been claimed as one of the great stars of Hollywood.

The actress has prohibited retouching her figure in the miniseries, specifically in a sex scene, with Guy Pearce (Memento), in which you can see the gut. The director showed her his determination to “cut out a piece” of his silhouette, and she didn’t even think about it: “Don’t you dare.”

And not only that. He wanted to see all the marks of his age in the promotional poster, which had to be edited twice because it was, in his opinion, “too retouched.” His argument was also forceful: “Guys, I know how many wrinkles I have in my eyes, please return them all.”

This is how she has managed to make Mare Sheehan’s character that of a normal woman, the kind that walks down the street every day. An inspector worn out by the problems that she drags, work and family, including the suicide of her son. Without stereotypes. Kate Winslet is the antonym of posturing.

“I play a middle-aged woman, I’ll be 46 in October, I guess that’s why people have connected with this character, because there are no filters”, recognized the protagonist in The New York Times.

No filters in your performance and no ornamental filters. The costumes and lighting have played in favor of Winslet appearing more disadvantaged on camera, because her role is that of “an imperfect woman in full swing, with a body and a face that are synonymous with her age, her life and her life. Where do you come from”.

As she herself said in an interview on Sunday Morning (CBS) in 2016, “the stars walk the red carpets, it’s part of the job.” Although it did not stop there: “I think it is very important to tell young people that we are not like that all the time.” A message that has been almost the slogan of his life.

Kate Winslet has had to face criticism for her physique since childhood, when her classmates nicknamed her “fat” for being “a chubby girl,” she explained. in statements collected by Marie Claire.

Impossible, moreover, forget his speech at the 2016 BAFTAs, when he dedicated the award to the acting teacher who guessed a future playing “fat” roles. “Look me now” (look at me now), he said with the award in hand and with a tone that aroused laughter from those present.

The blockbuster of Titanic It was by no means his first film, before he had already worked on the acclaimed Sense and Sensibility, Jude O Hamlet. However, playing Rose DeWitt Bukater in 1997 not only brought her international fame and her second Oscar nomination – and it was Emma Thompson who convinced her to take the role – it also made her the object of historical mockery. Because not only has it been said that Jack also fit in the table, but the eternal jokes also mention that DiCaprio would have had more hole if she had been thinner.

Since his film debut in Celestial creatures (1994), Desson Thomson (critic of The Washington Post) saw in the British “a ball of fire with bright eyes that illuminates every scene in which it appears ”.

Kate Winslet was not blinded by the good reviews from its inception or by the overwhelming success of Titanic, and continued working on minor films despite having many offers on the table.

In the set “Has explored the limits of sexual liberation” (Los Angeles Magazine), “Its craziest part” (Index Magazine) and has been able to laugh at herself when participating in an episode of Extras, the Ricky Gervais comedy in which several British stars perform a satirical version of their lives.

Kate Winslet can be an example for being a woman without complexes despite all the lights that illuminate her. And without grudges. At age 40, as she reported on CBS, she met one of those classmates who harassed her at school. “She was working in a beauty supply store, I approached her and said: I want to thank you for being such a bitch, because you made me stronger.”

He shows that same firmness in his public appearances – whether to open up on the channel or to charge against Hollywood for homophobia – and in his work. And that’s the other reason why Mare of Easttown He has raised her once again as the acting star that she has always been.
