The Handmaid's Tale

Body

Five years after Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel was published (and almost thirty before the critically-acclaimed TV series), this Harold Pinter scripted adaptation brought this staggering vision to screen. Kate (Natasha Richardson) is captured while trying to escape the future fascist Republic of Gilead and sentenced to become a Handmaid - a subjugated woman who must bear the children of an assigned man. Haunted her husband's death and her separation from her daughter, she is sent to live with the Commander (Robert Duvall) and his cold, unfeeling wife Serena Joy (Faye Dunaway)...

Followed by a discussion.
