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.
Alias Grace is a solid, well-made piece of television that doesn't hide its intelligence under a bonnet, as costume dramas can do. Nor does it attempt to keep your attention with soap opera style cliff-hangers.
