Mrs. Fletcher S1

Romcom miniseries Mrs Fletcher is all about growing up and finding life again – when you’re already an adult.

It’s based on the book of the same name by Tom Perrotta (he also wrote The Leftovers) and follows Eve Fletcher, a divorcee whose son has gone to college, prompting her to realise that she hasn’t really moved on. Plus, she’s lonely. Really lonely.

Kathryn Hahn is picture-perfect as Eve and she tugs on your heartstrings while also pressing all the right buttons. You want her to be happy, and you really want her to get the little bit of loving she desperately needs.

The show highlights the struggles that people go through after divorce and the awkwardness of dating, whether it’s about starting a relationship or just about sex. And it makes fun of them in a meaningful, touching way.

If only the world around Eve was toned down a bit, this would be the perfect romcom dramedy, writes Angelica Jade Bastién for “The series is at its most bracing when interrogating what happens when fantasies meet the oxygen of reality.”
