News & Interviews for Mrs. America: Season 1
I'm completely nuts about this series, with its soundtrack that's all Etta James and Mama Cass, and its clothes that make you want to go wild on Etsy; I've only to see Tracey Ullman, who plays Betty Friedan... to clap my hands in delight.
There are a lot of plots in "Mrs. America..." But they're woven together organically, unfolding with the same grace of the phenomenal cast.
Schlafly is ostensibly the subject here, and Blanchett's performance is masterful, but Mrs. America is an ensemble piece in which its central figure functions as an event.
"Mrs. America" is a show that will leave you thinking and, if you're femme in any way, questing for a revolution.
Mrs. America has zip to spare, bounding along on a '70s soundtrack, limning complex history, ideas, alliances, and personal dynamics with assuredness, tact, and insight.
