Critic reviews for Faithful
The Handmaid's Tale ramped up both June's relationship with the men in the household and the idea of a building revolution. Twinning these plotlines in this episode was smart.
Elisabeth Moss' performance here is stellar. She manages to look terrified, playful, flirty, and furious, all in one facial expression.
Another empowering episode of this Hulu drama that makes me want to bond with my female friends.
Gilead, like so much of patriarchy itself, is about the emotional precariousness of entitled little boys, acted out on the world by grown-ass men with fists and knives and guns and no self-awareness.
The great strength of "Faithful," yet another stunningly well-made and deeply affecting episode of The Handmaid's Tale, is the line it draws between these tastes of the forbidden, each of these rebellions, big and small.
