TV: The Hand­maid’s Tale

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - R14EVIEW -

TV is, mostly, an un­wind­ing ex­er­cise for me so my tastes are of­ten ju­ve­nile. I’m watch­ing Good Girls at the mo­ment on Net­flix and it’s a funny, women-tak­ing-ac­tion romp. But the TV pro­gramme that I loved most lately is the adap­ta­tion of Mar­garet At­wood’s novel The Hand­maid’s Tale. It’s vis­ually stun­ning, ter­ri­fy­ing, bril­liantly well acted and oh so dark. The pro­duc­ers did a great job and it’s fas­ci­nat­ing to watch the story un­spool be­yond the last pages of the novel.
