The Handmaid's Tale [1990] (DVD)

Volker Schlondorff

Currently unavailable


With a "cool eroticism, intelligence and intensity", this eerie futuristic thriller, based on Margaret Atwood's controversial and critically acclaimed best-selling novel, is filled with "large themes and deep thoughts" (Roger Ebert). Boasting a phenomenal cast including Natasha Richardson and Oscar-winners Faye Dunaway and Robert Duvall, this film "dazzles with its ingenuity and shocks with its outrageousness"! In the not-so-distant future, strong-willed and beautiful Kate (Richardson) possesses a precious commodity that most women have lost and most men want to control... fertility. Forced into a brain-washing bootcamp that turns fertile women into surrogate mothers for social-elite men and their infertile wives, Kate thinks she's made out well when she's assigned to an eminent party leader (Duvall). But when she learns that he's sterile, she's faced with the impossible choice: produce him an heir or die!
