Description

The drama series, based on the award-winning, best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism regime that treats women as property of the state. 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 a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates 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.

  • Intriguing

    By Smithy1783
    From episode 1 to 10 and the hours in between watching episodes, this drama has been utterly intriguing. In light of the world we live in today, this is a sobering tale of a dystopian future that should act as a warning to all sides of what might be. Beautifully filmed, passionately enacted and thoroughly entertaining. Thank you for the recommendation.... Sadly, I don’t recall who that was in my RSS feed. Nonetheless, I look forward to the next series to see where the tale of the Handmaids goes next. They say that reading the book is generally a better experience but with crafting of story, artistic film and wonderful acting - occasionally, its worth waiting for the next series rather than reading the book.

    It's an amazing series based on a fantastic book. Can be difficult to watch at times and certainly provokes thought.
