TV: The Handmaid’s Tale
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.
