Grace is being pushed towards an edge; now it's just a matter of how she'll tumble over it.
It's good, and worth watching; it just doesn't feel as essential as Handmaid's does.
Seen in full, and judged not as a conventional crime drama, but rather as a psychological character study, Alias Grace is a rousing success.
Alias Grace is a savagely political tale, dressed up in modest aprons and bonnets for the period drama crowd.
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.
