True-crime lurid­ness meets but­tonedup Vic­to­rian morals in this adap­ta­tion of Mar­garet At­wood's 1996 novel. Screen­writer Sarah Pol­ley en­ters the mind of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a house­maid im­pris­oned for her role in the deaths of her em­ployer and his house­keeper. As Grace ex­ca­vates mem­o­ries at the be­hest of a shrewd psy­chol­o­gist, the lay­ers of truth and un­cer­tainty form a frac­tured pic­ture of what re­ally hap­pened. Sept. 25.
