Watch a Trailer For New Netflix Murder Drama, Alias Grace

Watch a Trailer For New Netflix Murder Drama, Alias Grace

Margaret atwood

The follow up to Handmaid's Tale will also tackle issues of gender, sexuality & murder.

After The Handmaid's Tale became a runaway hit, TV streaming services began clambering to be the next to adapt a Margaret Atwood original novel. Netflix appears to be the next distributor to snag a title, with Alias Grace, a six-hour mini-series adapted from Atwood's novel about the real story of convicted murderer Grace Marks.

Marks (played by Sara Gadon) was condemned for killing her boss, Thomas Kinnear, and his maid/mistress Nancy Montgomery (played by Anna Paquin) in Canada in the 1800s. The stable boy James McDermott, her partner in crime, was hanged for the killings, while Marks was released from prison after 30 years and exonerated of the murders.

"I think of all the things that have been written about me," Marks asks in the trailer. "That I am an inhuman female demon. That I am an innocent victim of a blaggard, forced against my will and in danger of my own life. That I am cunning and devious. How can I be all of these different things at once?"

The mini-series will come to your laptop on November 3, giving you ample time to do what you didn't do for Handmaid's Tale and read the novel first.
