A Quick Tip by Trekscribbler

A very strange visionary tale that I believe suffers in adaptation from book to the silver screen, THE HANDMAID'S TALE does boast a very solid performance from an exuberant Natasha Richardson and an unusually stoic Robert Duvall. While I'm not exactly certain whether or not the point of the picture is made as soundly as it could be, the theme of genetic perfection is often times handled all too delicately on film. That said, the films does contain the pivotal scene of attempted conception, with Duvall and Richardson doing the nasty, while Duvall's wife aids somewhat in the process; this single scene, filmed in almost a basic documentary style and void of passion, stays with the average viewer long after the picture fades.
