A Handmaids Tale

This DARK tale comes from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale…” 

It focuses on the strange… futuristic world of “Gilead” —->a totalitarian society… what -USED- to be…the United States.

Whoa… talk about something WEIRD and NEW… yet oddly familiar… for periods of time we’ve learned about in history…. with a TWIST!

Think: Pilgrims, and Salem witch trials… strict stories we’ve read about from Puritan times…

Now– make those thoughts more bitter…. imagining a ~dash~ of hunger games… mad max… the scarlet letter..and water world…. 

-sigh- I’m trying my best to sort this out in my mind… and portions of it.. are quite alarming…

You can’t help but wonder… how did all this come to be…in this harshly controlled environment of the future????  What is this world 🌎 coming to ⁉️



Ahhhhh
…. that’s how all of us attending the premiere at the Arclight got HOOKED!!!  

WE WANT MORE DETAILS!!! Episodes 1-3 are now streaming on HULU

While watching the first episode in the theater… I looked around me… in the huge dome…in Hollywood… and everyone was locked in!

 I saw intense expressions on each face… and everyone kept their eyes on that giant screen!!!

I’m pretty sure they will all be subscribing to HULU….to see the future holds in this strange place.

I’m already subscribed… to HULU… and this is ONE MORE intriguing DRAMA… that will definitely be added to my “MUST SEE 👀LIST!

 Facing environmental disasters.. the curse of infertility… and a plunging birthrate…  Gilead is ruled by a twisted fundamentalism in its militarized…. “return to traditional values….”

As one of the few remaining fertile women, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is a Handmaid in the Commander’s household… ( the commander is coldly played by Joseph Fiennes… by the way..)  

Offred….. ((not her real name… you have to watch… to get more about that!)))…. is forced into sexual servitude in a desperate attempt to repopulate the world…. 

 In this terrifying society…Offred has to deal with powerful Commanders.. their cruel Wives… domestic Marthas… (these are middle aged…and older women) …and her fellow Handmaids – where ~anyone~ could be a spy for Gilead.

*******  It’s all so DEEP!!!! *******

The GOAL..here . is simply for Offred to SURVIVE! Not to mention the fact…that she yearns to find the daughter taken from her…literally snatched out of her arms… at the beginning of this new nightmare… of a life!

Eventhough frightening tactics have been used to brainwash young women… in every possible way… Offred  struggles to keep her sanity… and not get in any trouble!

At any rate… This new show on HULU.. is going to spark a lot of dialogue… and really get you thinking……………
