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.

    Simply the best show ever.... but of course it would be with the incredible acting talent of Elisabeth Moss as June/Offred!

    Warning: This show is not for the weak of stomach. Literally, I felt ill during points of the show due to some pretty gruesome content but I couldn't stop watching as a supporter of the protagonists. While the concept is extreme, the content is pretty onpoint with current trends and makes the viewer pay attention to the relevancy of present voice, moral actions and environmental wellfair. Five stars for that!
  • Great show!

    Not worth 1 dollar
  • Relentlessly pessimistic, but with a sharp edge of hope.

    Beautifully raw, with a humanity that is doubly powerful for being so small. Elisabeth Moss is terrific as a complex victim of the religious state and the Waterford family drifting toward rebellion, but Yvonne Strahovski as Mrs. Waterford is just as good. She is a monster, but a very human one. She manages to be thoughtlessly and deliberately cruel, while simultaneously vulnerable and hurt and sometimes kind. There are few simple characters in this show, and these actresses portray them perfectly.
