“Coming of age” often alludes to braces, first kisses and puberty- but HBO’s newest hit show Mrs. Fletcher proves that the definition is much broader than teenage angst.
The show stars Kathryn Hahn as Eve Fletcher, a divorcee who plunges in to a midlife crisis after her son Brendan goes off to college. Simultaneously, mother and son find themselves in situations that awaken their own sexuality and sense of self. In a story that can only be comedic, Eve meets a side of herself that she has never known; all while Brendan experiences a few unexpected introductions. The duo proves that coming of age really is for any age.
Adapted from Tom Perrotta’s bestselling novel with the same name, Mrs. Fletcher received a preview screening at the Toronto International Film Festival. Its broadcast premiere is set for October 27th.
Kathryn Hahn sits down with eTalk host Traci Melchor to talk personal growth on set, mommy milestones and being a nosy neighbour.
