Critic Reviews for Alias Grace: Miniseries

All Critics (73) | Top Critics (31)

Grace is being pushed towards an edge; now it's just a matter of how she'll tumble over it.

January 31, 2018 | Full Review…

It's good, and worth watching; it just doesn't feel as essential as Handmaid's does.

December 29, 2017 | Full Review…

Seen in full, and judged not as a conventional crime drama, but rather as a psychological character study, Alias Grace is a rousing success.

TV Line

Alias Grace is a savagely political tale, dressed up in modest aprons and bonnets for the period drama crowd.

December 19, 2017 | Full Review…

That's the ultimate appeal of Alias Grace: the subdued, no-shit narrative approach to Grace's story, and Gadon's performance of quiet strength.

Margaret Atwood's heroines don't own their sexuality. With Alias Grace following The Handmaid's Tale, the revolution is being televised.
