“Alias Grace” —> Streaming NOW on NetflixΒ 


Alias Grace” is a novel of historical fiction… (based on what many say… was a sensational TRUE story), written by Canadian writer Margaret Atwood.
Interestingly enough… the other streaming platform’s adaptation of a Margaret Atwood novel, “The Handmaid’s Tale.” starring Elizabeth Moss…streaming on “Hulu” has done superbly!

 **By the way…** the leading female character in “ALIAS GRACE”… is also a fiery soul underneath a modest public face…wearing a white head covering… like “HANDMAIDS TALE”


“The Handmaiden Tale” has earned high accolades… and a LOT of awards… 

TOP prime time Emmys…for BEST drama series, actress in a drama series (Elisabeth Moss), writing in a drama series (Bruce Miller), directing in a drama series (Reed Morano) and supporting actress in a drama series (Ann Dowd).

Those victories…πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ πŸ™ŒπŸ½ πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ have PAVED THE WAY…. for the NEXT BEST THING…..

Presenting the HOTTEST πŸ”₯New Historic Fall debut….

✨”Alias Grace!!!”✨ 


I sincerely believe ~ THIS~ will be another major success‼️
I was captivated… immediately! When I left the screening room after watching… I paid attention to the clusters of women…remaining in this theatre… excitedly chatting about what they’d just witnessed…
“Oooo I can’t wait to see ALL of it!!!” One woman whispered out loud…

I smiled to myself… and reflected on what I watched….
Alias Grace” explores issues about race, class, and gender in the Canadian Victorian era.
The main character..”Grace”is stitched out in the series as a prisoner and a patient.

 A scapegoat and a victim.  
A mysterious… wise.. and very DEEP soul…

As a person… who truly admires…the art of QUILTING… I was immediately struck.. by the symbolism of **quilting** in portions of this story.

Visuals… and explanations of various types of patchwork… will firmly…attach your ATTENTION…to the very complex… leading character… “Grace”

Throughout the novel … and in several scenes… in the Netflix series…Grace is piecing together quilts… as her narration unfolds…the dark story.

This is a wonderfully constructed… quality series…led by women… in every major way.


The story is based on a 16 year old Irish servant girl Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon)… who was was found guilty and imprisoned… for the murders of her master and mistress. 

The details of this case are very sketchy…
Piece… by piece… we get information about the harsh life… of this young immigrant…
through conversations she has…with Dr. Simon Jordan (Edward Holcroft)…a mental health expert… (someone that we would come to know… as a psychiatrist… before they were called that in the 1800’s…)

Dr. Jordan’s investigates whether Grace is NOW insane, or WAS insane at the time of the murders.  

His mission is to gather enough information..that could pardon her. 
At first Grace is reluctant to answer the doctors questions, but as she gets a little more comfortable… and the Doctor earns her trust…this intriguing story really opens up!

This saga will instantly grab your attention… and leave you wanting to know more!!!!

Soooo…… what Happened????

πŸ‘‰πŸ½That’s what I kept saying…πŸ‘ˆπŸ½

The actress portraying “Grace” –> (Sarah Gadon), says…there are different versions of the murder mystery…connected to a true story.. 

Gadon … and “Alias Grace” director… (Mary Harron) did extensive research on the time period… .

They met every day…for hours… for a long time…to break down her character —> “Grace” from innocent victim… to the “demon” as she was once described….

Gaddon says she also worked really hard… (taking a lot of notes…) to perfect her Northern Irish accent…for the role of GRACE.


Another one of the most refreshing things… I found about this story… is that it was written by a woman.. (Margaret Atwood) —> produced by a woman..(Sally Polley) —> and directed by a woman… Mary Harron…

Harron has directed several projects for the BBC..

The two leading female stars…⭐️⭐️ working on this project..

🌟Sarah Gadon…   


and

🌟 Anna Paquin…


say it was really nice…working with other women… on a “stress free” production set…and not feel the -threat- of harassment… or uncomfortable treatment looming overhead…πŸ™ŒπŸ½

πŸ‘‰πŸ½ That being said… 

Actress… Anna Paquin…also noted… that people must NOT forget… there are some really GOoD & DECENT men… out there… doing the RIGHT thing in the industry!  

#Yay!!! πŸŽ‰ for those guys!!!! πŸ˜‰

One of the “RIGHT THINGS” this female director did… for this project… is paint a believable picture of the time period… and the conditions…to go along with historical accounts.


There are a lot of incredible visuals created for this mini- series… that were carefully researched… and reflected…onscreen.

Director Mary Harron says an antique ship was used…for the immigrants overseas journey to Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ ..

The interior shots on the ship…during the voyage…were filmed on a gimbal. Harron…credits Netflix for giving her a decent budget… to shoot this series…in the best possible way… with Top production value!

The Series —>

“Alias Grace” premieres the first week of NOVEMBER … on NETFLIX!!!! 


It’s another really good ~NEW~ thing… that’s a MUST SEE… for sure!!!
