About ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’

With birth rates collapsing, a totalitarian regime takes over the United States to impose a strict religious doctrine fed by fanatical devotion and the lust for power. Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale” tells the story of June (Elizabeth Moss, “The Invisible Man”), an enslaved handmaiden and one of the few remaining fertile women used as breeding stock for the elite. As she forges alliances and struggles for her freedom, the patriarchy fights back to keep her and those like her suppressed. June’s determination pushes her forward as she seeks out a way to reunite with her husband and child, transforming her into a darker version of herself.
