On April 26th, Margaret Atwood’s dystopian classic will hit the small screen for Hulu and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Starring Elizabeth Moss of Mad Men fame and prestige, The Handmaid’s Tale centers on Offred (Moss), a woman who is, thanks to increased sterility in the harrowing time world she lives in, designated to sleep with men for reproductive purposes. Although written by a Canadian years ago, as our political climate worsens, and women’s bodies feel increasingly marginalized, this classic is aging well (unfortunately). Even Atwood calls the story “more relevant than ever.” So hats off to Canada’s greatest author. We might be joining her soon!
