Beyond Stunning
3 November 2017 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I have just had the extreme pleasure of watching this series, based on Margaret Atwood's novel Alias Grace. Contrary to some reviewers on this site who claim that Atwood isn't known much outside her native Canada, I'd point out that she was compulsory reading on any English Lit course in the 70s in England. Oryx and Crake, The Handmaid's Tale, were speculative fiction ahead of their time (much like Orwell's 1984). Alias Grace is a more approachable novel and highly suitable for an adaptation to television. The leads of this series are superb, especially Sarah Gadon, who almost inhabited Grace to the endangerment of her sanity! A quite mesmerising performance. But the Oscar must go to the set dressers of this stunning work of art. As Grace tells her story, she is always working: sewing, beating rugs, scrubbing laundry, churning butter... and every single utensil, every button, every slip of thread is utterly real and compelling. Watch this series and marvel at just how good television can be. Now, having done this and The Handmaid's Tale, producers need to turn their attention to Cat's Eye, Attwood's most disturbing novel of all.
