Alias Grace

Did she, or didn’t she?

This weekend, Netflix brings us ‘Alias Grace,’ Margaret Atwood’s novel adapted by Sarah Polley and directed by Mary Harron. 

It stars Sarah Gadon as Grace Marks, a young Irish immigrant who moved to Canada in the 1830’s, and was convicted of murder in the 1840’s. While in prison, a young American psychiatrist (Edward Holcroft) is brought in to assess her role in the murders. Grace tells her story to the Doctor and we have to decide whether she is guilty or innocent. Performances are exceptional all round and it is not only a beautifully crafted adaptation, but makes for gripping viewing. We LOVE.
