Mrs. Fletcher [2019]

Mrs Fletcher - Kathryn Han in bed

Mrs. Fletcher is definitely an explicit series. Kathryn Hahn who plays Eve is a divorcée and is undergoing a mid-life crisis. A single mom whose son has moved out for college looks to begin a new life on her own. The issue is, she has no idea what life she wants.

Mrs. Fletcher is a two-coming-of-ages stories mixed into one. Eve Fletcher (Kathryn Hahn) is trying to discover what her life would be after she becomes an empty nester when her son Brendan (Jackson White) goes to college. Meanwhile, Brendan is going thru a crash course on college life, responsibilities, consent, and adulthood.

The seven charming, illuminating, half-hour episodes take you on a while (very explicit) ride with online pornography, trans representation, self-discovery, and privilege.

Mrs. Fletcher was adapted from a book with the same name by Tom Perrotta. Sadly, Perrotta’s book ends in a far different place than the series which ending is sudden, but a perfect close to the two leads’ parallel journeys.

To sum it up, Kathryn Hahn should have been nominated for an Emmy for her role as Eve, if not winning it.

Short version? Yes. It’s not for everyone and don’t watch it with your kids. Kathryn Hahn does an EXCELLENT job embodying her character, but the explicit scenes make it too revealing for some.
