By now you’ve probably heard about the film that’s set to be adapted from the novel by Margaret Atwood and David Mitchell, The Handmaids Tale.
It’s about a dystopian America in which women are forced to work as domestic servants.
But it’s also one of Hollywood’s best-loved and critically acclaimed shows, with a cult following and the backing of HBO.
It has also been the subject of intense debate in the US and elsewhere over the past few years.
So what is this story about, and how does it relate to the rest of us?
The short answer is that it’s about an American who is coerced into being a slave by a mysterious woman, played by Margaret Innes, and has no idea where she’s going.
The US Constitution was enacted to guarantee this right, but since then women have been increasingly denied it.
This is a major theme of the book, which is also set in the 19th century.
In the film, Margaret Inwood plays a woman named Elizabeth, who is taken captive by a plantation owner in an attempt to get her to agree to work for the slave owner, who has been secretly building a large, ornate house and a garden in her backyard.
The woman has an uncanny ability to predict the outcome of events.
As we will see, Elizabeth is being tricked into agreeing to work under Margaret Inns conditions and then being forced into this horrific life.
This is a very common plot device in American fiction, and the premise of The Handmaiden is very much rooted in the book.
As the novel is set in 1815, Elizabeth’s husband, Thomas (Jonathan Groff), dies when she is only eight years old, leaving her a widow.
Her mother, Elizabeth, inherits the estate, which has since been divided up between two sisters, Mary (Katharine Isabelle) and Hannah (Melissa Leo).
This gives Hannah the right to take control of the house and garden and the ability to control how it is used.
It is in this context that the story takes place, and when Elizabeth is brought to the home of the other sisters in a desperate attempt to persuade her to work, the reality of her circumstances is put in stark terms.
In the book we see that this situation is far from ideal, with the house, garden and garden equipment being all used up.
She is forced to live in an underground prison, with her hands tied behind her back, with no food, water or hygiene facilities.
This means that she is forced in her own home for weeks on end, constantly being kept awake at night and subjected to physical, sexual and emotional abuse.
As the film shows, it is Elizabeth who is in charge of her own life.
She takes responsibility for her actions and she has a choice of what to do with her life.
Her only recourse is to flee.
In order to keep the plantation moving forward, she has to do whatever she can to keep Elizabeth in bondage.
She also has to work to make sure that the other women in the family have access to food and water, as well as to do their jobs, which are mostly household chores.
Elizabeth makes a deal with the plantation owner, whom she knows has been keeping her alive as long as she is alive.
She agrees to keep her as a domestic servant, in exchange for the plantation’s ability to build a massive, ornated house and to construct a huge garden.
In return, the plantation has promised her a place to stay in a nearby town.
When she is released, she finds herself in the care of a new mother named Anne (Diane Kruger).
In order to stay alive, Elizabeth must work with her two best friends, Lydia (Jodie Foster) and Nancy (Judi Dench), who are also working as maids for the owner.
The plantation owner’s daughter, Mary, is also a maid and she is determined to have the family back in order.
This makes Lydia and Nancy’s marriage very precarious.
Lydia and her sister, Elizabeth (played by Julia Roberts), are the ones who convince Mary to leave Elizabeth behind.
Mary is in no mood to work in the household.
She leaves the family and returns to her new life in London.
The two women are also left behind, and Mary’s husband dies.
She goes into hiding.
This brings the situation to a head.
The film is a darkly comic take on the lives of the women in Elizabeth’s life.
We get a glimpse of what life in the house was like for Elizabeth’s older sister, Hannah (Michelle Williams), and the new mother.
The women’s lives are constantly being threatened, and they are forced into a precarious position in which they have no choice but to choose between their children and their safety.
The film has a very heavy political undercurrent, with Hannah and Mary having to face the fact that
