Margaret Atwood's heroines don't own their sexuality. With Alias Grace following The Handmaid's Tale,, the revolution is being televised.

December 1, 2017 | Rating: 9 | Full Review…

Alias Grace is a solid, well-made piece of television that doesn't hide its intelligence under a bonnet, as costume dramas can do. Nor does it attempt to keep your attention with soap opera style cliff-hangers.

November 29, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Through Sarah Polley's rhythmic writing and Mary Harron's moody visuals, Margaret Atwood's beautiful prose has been translated to moving poetry in this engrossing series.

Alias Grace is a remarkable story.

November 14, 2017 | Full Review…

... Alias Grace is discomfiting, compelling, deeply insightful television.

[Sarah] Gadon's performance is remarkable and the direction of Mary Harron ("I Shot Andy Warhol") improves it further still: In tight focus, her eyes betray nothing, or rather betray no one.
