Description

The drama series, based on the award-winning, best-selling novel by Margaret Atwood, is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly part of the United States. Facing environmental disasters and a plunging birthrate, Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism regime that treats women as property of the state. As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate a devastated world. In this terrifying society where one wrong word could end her life, Offred navigates between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids -- where anyone could be a spy for Gilead -- all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.

    Not completely true to the book, it is still a wonderful series. You have been warned - these stories are there to tell us what can happen. This could easily occur.

    Absolutely brilliant series, enthralling. I'm up to the second last episode. I'm going to miss it when it finishes. Hopefully there's another season on it's way soon. A series not to be missed!

    One of the most gripping and interesting television series I’ve ever watched. The thing that makes it so gripping is that the series shows you how this could become a reality in our society. The acting is superlative and the set designs are grim and realistic. Highly, highly recommended.
  • In dire need of a good edit.

    5 episodes would have sufficed. Too many long and laboured scenes. Cetainly not worth the hype surrounding the show.
  • So good!

    I first watched this fantastic TV series on Australian SBS - On Demand. I then decided to purchase it from iTunes so I could watch it again on my computer free from any advertising. I noticed however that some to the content had been censored from the iTunes version. So disappointing At point of purchase there was no indication that any of the content had been cut I would now like to know from iTunes before I purchase anything whether I will be watching an uncensored version iTunes needs to be very transparent about this - it is deceiving customers not to inform them at point of purchase about whether TV Shows, Movies or Music have been cut I would not have purchased The Handmaid's Tale if I had known it had been censored So purchasers of this TV show be warned - it has been censored

    Horrible movie.What a nightmare world it would be if this came true!
  • Too real for me to love it

    The writer based this story on things that have happened to real women all around the world. That's why it's quite depressing and very heart-rendingly real. I'm not sure I can watch it all, but it is absolutely great SF. Intense experience, not for people looking for something light and uplifting.
  • What a disappointment

    I’ve got so bored , had to fast forward the repetitive “ procreation “ scenes , geez got the zero human / intimacy concept in 5 minutes , so 10 episodes on it ! Found the characters one dimensional in a story line which goes no where ! A sterile show indeed ! Sorry folks!
