“When they slaughtered Congress, we didn’t wake up. When they blamed terrorists and suspended the Constitution, we didn’t wake up then either.”
Here is the trailer for Hulu’s Original Series The Handmaid’s Tale, based on the novel by Margaret Atwood and starring Mad Men’s Elisabeth Moss, Gilmore Girls’ Alexis Bledel, and Orange is the New Black’s Samira Wiley. Damn it all, if it’s words don’t ring true right now. I have never found a trailer to be more piercing and relevant. Can’t wait to devour this show when it debuts on April 26.
