A dystopian world

A TV adaptation of Margaret Atwood's iconic novel The Handmaid's Tale is out. It is a fresh and relevant story that cautions against a horrifying totalitarian future.

For those who haven't read the book, Atwood creates a dystopian world that feels plausible, relevant and scary. In the show, Elisabeth Moss stars as Offred, who's serving as a handmaid in the new religiously run military that is called the Republic of Gilead. In Gilead, people's rights have been severely compromised, and women, with virtually no rights, are forcibly placed in strict class systems.

The show has action, adventure, a little bit of romance and enough realistic horror to make even Game of Thrones fans flinch.
