Hulu share trailer for their exclusive take on The Handmaid's Tale
Hulu have released the first trailer for the exclusive new adaptation of Margaret Atwood's dystopian novel The Handmaid's Tale.
Adapted from the classic novel by Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid's Tale is the story of life in the dystopia of Gilead, a totalitarian society in what was formerly the United States. Facing environmental disasters 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, one of the caste of women forced into sexual servitude as a last desperate attempt to repopulate the world. In this terrifying society, Offred must navigate between Commanders, their cruel Wives, domestic Marthas, and her fellow Handmaids – where anyone could be a spy for Gilead – all with one goal: to survive and find the daughter that was taken from her.
As yet there is no word on how we'll be able to watch this in the UK - Hulu is a US-only service and no UK-servicing channel or service has announced their intention to pick up the show. US viewers can watch from 16th May.
