A timely tale..?

March 24, 2017 by Miss Stewart | 0 comments

The full trailer for Hulu’s adaptation of The Handmaid’s Tale is finally out! Initial feedback is that it looks really good. There’s never been a better time to read the original book; do it now before you see this new adaptation! Any fans of Margaret Atwood’s dystopian novel can now get officially very excited! 😉

“The trailer starts by teasing the viewer about how nobody saw the dystopia coming before it happened; mentions of the destruction of Congress and the constitution leave us at the edge of our seats. Doubt it? Watch the whole thing below and tell us what you think in the comments!” – BookRiot

“In an allegory about the curative power of story, books return the favor to those who care for them.”

Clishmaclaver first came across this beautiful film several years ago but for some reason it just popped into my head today, and I had to share.

I’ve had a lifelong love of all things Buster Keaton – you should see my ‘silent comedians’ bookshelf at home; I must have everything written on the subject. Well, almost 😉 – and stories, so you might imagine that this gorgeous little gem of a film would appeal. And you’d be right.

Just watch it. It’s wonderful. Click here for a synopsis if you must but I’m not going to say another word… <3
