Description

Details

In a future America gripped by an extreme right-wing Christianity, women have been stripped of their independence and are divided into classes: wives, aunts and handmaidens - the few women who have not been rendered sterile by pollution, who are placed with couples solely to bear children.

Offred (Natasha Richardson) is one of these women, haunted by her past life and child as she fights to regain agency over her life from the fundamentalists who have stolen control of womens' bodies and minds.

Before the blockbuster TV series, this was the original screen version of Margaret Atwood's disturbing and increasingly prescient novel, adeptly adapted by Harold Pinter.
