Alias Grace Trailer: Another Margaret Atwood Adaptation, This Time a Murder Mini-series

By

Margaret Atwood fans take note, as the illustrious author’s work is being adapted for TV once again in Netflix’s upcoming and very Canadian Alias Grace, based on her historical-fiction novel of the same name. Sarah Gadon stars as Grace Marks, who in 1843 was convicted of double homicide ­­— although debate has lasted over whether or not Marks actually played a role in the murders or was just an unknowing witness. Atwood’s novel takes from the real-life events of the murders while constructing a fictional narrative around them. Edward Holcroft, Zachary Levi, and Anna Paquin co-star in the six part mini-series, with Sarah Polley writing and Mary Harron (American Psycho) directing. The series will drop on Netflix on November 3.
