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.

[Sarah] Gadon is extraordinary as the chameleon-like Grace, who seems at once naive and canny, calculating yet open-hearted, traditional but rebellious.

The Straits Times (Singapore)

A haunting, subtle performance from Sarah Gadon.

Through Sarah Polley's rhythmic writing and Mary Harron's moody visuals, Margaret Atwood's beautiful prose has been translated to moving poetry in this engrossing series.
