The Handmaid's Tale (Hulu) #1 - “Better never means better for everyone... It always means worse, for some.”

The Handmaid's Tale



Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized ‘return to traditional values'. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

Oh yay, you started a thread! You know I'm definitely excited about this one. Has anyone read the book? It's fantastic. And I think the cast is great.

Yeah, the reviews have all been pretty much raves. I hope it's as good as they say.

Yeah, I thought that pic was pretty neat. I don't what I would do if I saw a bunch of Handmaids just walking around.

Thanks for the info! All the ladies looked lovely at Tribeca.

1 more day!!!
