Grappling With the Sincere Horrors of ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ (Column)

19 June 2017 5:10 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

“The Handmaid’s Tale,” which aired its Season 1 finale June 14, is one of the best shows of the 2016-2017 season. It’s also one of the most challenging. The drama is beautifully lit and gorgeously directed, and the protagonist is performed with singular clarity by Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss. And yet there are times where the show is, for lack of a better word, basic — simplistic, in a way that seems out of pace with what the rest of the show is accomplishing.

The best example is in the fourth episode, “Nolite Te Bastardes Carbonundorum,” in which June, called Offred, discovers a pidgin Latin phrase used by her predecessor Handmaid. It prompts her to look back on her own identity as a Handmaid and reframe it. “We are Handmaids,” June muses to herself at the end of the episode, with a slight smile on her face. “Nolite te bastardes carbonundorum, bitches »

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Star Elisabeth Moss Talks Season 1’s Momentous Finale

16 June 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler Alert: Do not read if you have not watched “Night,” the June 14 episode of “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

The last shot of Season 1 of “The Handmaid’s Tale” is June, now called Offred, sitting in the darkness inside a black van with a peculiar serenity on her face. The finale’s last scene is identical to the last moments of Margaret Atwood’s book, which leaves its protagonist in an ambiguous, vulnerable spot — either on her way to a certain punishment or on a path of constructive resistance. Unlike the landmark novel, Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” will give us a sense of what happens next; the show has been renewed for a second season. In the meantime, we are also in the dark.

Elisabeth Moss has been lauded for her performances past, such as Peggy on “Mad Men” and Robin in “Top of the Lake,” which returns for a second season in September. But »

'The Handmaid's Tale' Star Elisabeth Moss Explains Pivotal Finale, Outlines Season 2

14 June 2017 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - TV News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - TV News news »

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season one finale of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, "Night."]   Heading into Wednesday's finale of The Handmaid's Tale, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) had plenty on her mind. Between getting pregnant with Nick's (Max Minghella) — not The Commander's (Joseph Fiennes) — baby, learning her daughter's whereabouts after being emotinally tortured by Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) and refusing to stone Janine (Madeline Brewer) at the bequest of Aunt Lydia (Ann Dowd), it seemed like the handmaid's world was about to implode.

And implode it did in the final few moments of season »

'The Handmaid's Tale' Boss Talks Finale and Going Beyond the Book in Season 2

[Warning: This story contains spoilers from the season one finale of Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale, "Night."]

It looks like viewers won't be the only ones taking a break from the Waterford household now that the first season of The Handmaid's Tale has wrapped. In the series' twisted and jam-packed finale, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) discovered she was pregnant with Nick's (Max Minghella) baby after Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) forced a test on her, and The Commander (Joseph Fiennes) learned that the baby wasn't his.

Fearing Offred would do something drastic and wanting to protect her unborn child, Serena drove Offred to the »

‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Finale Review: How ‘Night’ Echoed the Past While Making Us Crave the Future

14 June 2017 7:58 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s note: Spoilers follow for “The Handmaid’s Tale” Season 1, Episode 10, “Night.”]

The first season finale of “The Handmaid’s Tale” was rich with one of the show’s best traits: its ability to find human and relatable moments within these extraordinary yet awful circumstances.

And the emotion captured is as diverse as it is heart-wrenching. Offred/June (Elisabeth Moss), upon learning she’s pregnant, snapping at Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski): “You think I prayed to bring a baby into this house?” Nick’s (Max Minghella) quiet acknowledgement that it is, technically, his child. Moira (Samira Wiley) discovering via a license plate that she’d made it to freedom, and later stunned by the depth of human kindness that would greet her in Canada. Serena Joy snapping at her husband: “I know the law. I helped write it.” And of course, June opening the package smuggled to her from Jezebel’s, discovering something truly dangerous inside: the words of women like her, »

The Handmaid's Tale Ends Season 1 With a Pretty Devastating Cliffhanger

14 June 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Warning: Major spoilers for the end of The Handmaid's Tale's first season below! Season one of Hulu's tense, terrifying adaptation of The Handmaid's Tale, a pitch-perfect ode to Margaret Atwood's 1985 feminist novel of the same name, has officially come to a close. The final episode, "Night," starts out with Offred (Elisabeth Moss) boldly declaring that Gilead "should've never given us uniforms if they didn't want us to be an army," and it doesn't slow down from there. From an uncertain future for June/Offred to satisfying resolutions for some other fan-favorite characters, here are the biggest events that go down in the finale.

The Handmaid’s Tale episode 3 review: Late

The Handmaid’s Tale continues not to cushion its devastating blows in episode three …

This review contains spoilers.

1.3 Late

Whenever a novel with a confrontational message is adapted for the screen, the worry is that message will be diluted. Prose can afford to do its worst to make a point, but TV has reasons to rein things in - broadcasting standards, for one, not to mention an audience with more decent viewing options at their fingertips than there are days in the year. A book sold is a book sold, no matter if the buyer shelves it midway through. TV has to keep selling itself week-on-week. Push viewers too far and you risk them switching off, hence the impulse to soften.

8 June 2017 10:30 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

The dystopian, women-subjugating society of  “The Handmaid’s Tale” is full of people who willingly sign on with its evil. Whether they’re the leaders who created the place or just collaborators willing to go along, the show is full of people willing to watch others suffer every day — and even inflict that suffering. Here are 11 such folks, ranked by how much they sign on with Gilead’s evil agenda. Nick (Max Minghella) Nick’s not a bad guy, and he’s trapped in Gilead like a lot of people, but he’s still a cog in the machine. At most, »

Exclusive: ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Music Supervisor Talks Season 1’s Best Musical Moments

7 June 2017 2:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Now nine episodes into its first season, The Handmaid’s Tale has firmly established itself as one of the best shows of 2017.

Adapted from Margaret Atwood’s 1985 novel, the Hulu original series tells the story of women placed in servitude -- and subjected to ritualized rape in order to stave off infertility -- shortly after the fall of the U.S. government to a totalitarian and Christian fundamentalist government known as Gilead. At the center of this near-future dystopian saga (and the audience’s narrator) is Offred (Elisabeth Moss), a woman caught while trying to flee to Canada and eventually forced to become a handmaid in the household of Commander Fred Waterford and his wife, Serena Joy (played by Joseph Fiennes and Yvonne Strahovski).

Since its premiere, The Handmaid’s Tale has earned critical praise for its effective (and horrifying) storytelling led by showrunner Bruce Miller, as well as its chilling timeliness as it relates to the »

Emmy Contenders 2017: Supporting Actor in a Drama

6 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s a testament to “Better Call Saul” that the category might be dominated by its supporting players. While Jonathan Banks has scored nominations two years in a row, Giancarlo Esposito is added to the mix this year for reprising the character of Gus Fring, last seen on “Breaking Bad.” That performance earned him an Emmy nod and there’s no reason to think bringing the character to the spin-off won’t bode well. Michael McKean has shockingly never been nominated for an Emmy, and this year he delivered a phenomenal performance in the episode “Off Brand” when his character took the witness stand. “Westworld” also has a powerhouse trio in Ed Harris, James Marsden and Jeffrey Wright, all of whom could find themselves in the line-up. Also boasting dual possibilities is “The Crown,” which saw five-time Emmy winner John Lithgow channel Winston Churchill and Jared Harris as King George VI. They »

Channel 4 Acquires MGM’s ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ for the U.K.

16 May 2017 5:05 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Channel 4 has acquired U.K. rights to “The Handmaid’s Tale” from MGM Television, the British broadcaster said Tuesday. The acclaimed U.S. drama, starring Elisabeth Moss and Joseph Fiennes, will air on the channel later this month.

The 10-part drama, which Variety called “an upsetting, immersive, and horrifyingly beautiful vision of a too-close dystopian world,” is based on the novel by Margaret Atwood. It tells the story of life in a dystopian, totalitarian society in a former part of the U.S. where the fundamentalist regime treats women as property of the state.

“‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ is a chilling and frighteningly topical exploration of a world where women are subjugated,” said Jay Hunt, chief creative officer for Channel 4. “I’m delighted that Channel 4 viewers will get to see this critically acclaimed take on a classic novel.”

[Warning: This story contain's spoilers from the fifth episode of The Handmaid's Tale, "Faithful."]

If viewers thought things in Gilead — with its female-centric caste system, institutionalized rape, genital mutilation and baby-stealing — were messed up, Wednesday’s latest installment of the Hulu series, "Faithful," showed another perspective … or a glimmer of one in any case.

There were two main threads to follow in the present-day storyline: that of Offred (Elisabeth Moss) growing closer to Nick (Max Minghella) as Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski) arranged for them to copulate in a secret attempt to get Offred pregnant, and that of Emily »
