Margaret Atwood’s ‘Alias Grace’ Gets First Netflix Miniseries Trailer
The Margaret Atwood Cinematic Universe of dangerous women in bonnets continues to thrive. Netflix’s six’s part adaptation of Alias Grace has a first trailer for the November premiere, featuring stars Sarah Gadon, Zachary Levi and Anna Paquin.
Now set for November 3 premiere, Alias Grace released its surprisingly uptempo thriller of a first trailer, as Grace Marks (Gadon) struggles to remember her murderous past (or does she?). The six-episode series was written and produced by Sarah Polley, with American Psycho director Mary Harron behind the camera. Check out the key art below, along with a synopsis:
Based on the award-winning novel by Margaret Atwood and inspired by true events, Alias Grace tells the story of Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon), a young, poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who - along with stable hand James McDermott (Kerr Logan) - finds herself accused and convicted of the infamous 1843 double murder of her employer Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross), and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin).
All episodes will premiere on November 3, while Atwood’s Hulu The Handmaid’s Tale will return next year.
