Aroview: Disturbing but thoroughly rewarding version of Margaret Atwood's novel set in a near future where 99% of women have become infertile. Privileged couple Faye Dunaway and Robert Duvall use handmaid Natasha Richardson as a surrogate birth-mother. Scripted by Harold Pinter.
4 stars (Very Good) A futuristic tale of a patriarchical society under martial law in which fertile women are captured & made into handmaids to bear children. Told through the eyes of Kate, as resistance movement begins to challenge the regime. Gripping & disturbing stuff.~GenXGirl
