Film Description

In a future America that has become an extreme right-wing religious tyrrany, women have been stripped of their independence and are divided into classes; wives, aunts (spinster domestic workers) and handmaidens - the few women who have not been rendered sterile by pollution, who are placed with couples solely to bear children. Offred (Natasha Richardson) is one of these women, haunted by her past life and child. An adaptation of Margaret Atwood's novel, with the screenplay scripted by Harold Pinter.
