Kate Winslet plays a small-town Pennsylvania police detective with a messy home life in “Mare of Easttown,” filmed around the Philadelphia region here in Eastown Township. This crime drama is a murder mystery with a great cast.. remember Jean Smart on "Designing Women?" Smart plays the opinionated mother. It's takes place in a Delaware County town where everyone knows everyone's business. Kate Winslet said it was the hardest accent she ever had to learn... that Delco accent! It starts streaming Sunday on HBO Max.
"Concrete Cowboy" is a coming-of-age drama set in North Philly, and filmed there, too. It's about a handful of residents who maintain a rickety old horse stable. It's based on the Fletcher Street Urban Riding Club in North Philadelphia. Did you know there is an urban African-American horse riding culture in Philly? It stars Idris Elba as a horse trainer and a father whose troublemaker son comes to live with him after the kid's mother kicks him out of his house in Detroit. The lovely images of horses framed against the urban landscape of Philadelphia is amazing and beautiful. The series of 7 episodes is streaming now on Netflix.
