Adapted by Harold Pinter from the landmark novel by Margaret Atwood, the original screen adaptation of THE HANDMAID’S TALE takes place in an authoritarian future America where young, healthy women must serve the country by giving birth to babies for an increasingly infertile society determined to produce a more “pure” generation. When she is forced to become a childbearing “handmaiden” for the wealthy Commander (Robert Duvall) and his wife (Faye Dunaway), Offred (Natasha Richardson) launches a rebellion to reclaim her autonomy.

"Tätä kaikkien hehkuttamaa sarjaa en ole katsonut, saati kirjaa lukenut. Areena tosin tarjosi hyvin ysärintäytteisen tulkinnan. Sekä hyvässä että huonossa mielessä. Robert Duvall vain on limainen jopa minunlaiseni ei-feministin silmissä."
