Alias Grace Audience Reviews More Review

ThiefHott Too much of everything
Beanbioca As Good As It Gets
ChicRawIdol A brilliant film that helped define a genre
Billy Ollie Through painfully honest and emotional moments, the movie becomes irresistibly relatable
emepe The story is surely intriguing (due to the original novel, I guess; haven't read it). Script and acting are good. But, as another reviewer stated, same actress playing a 15 year old and a 30 year old is not convincing enough. And also, the Irish accent. I am not a English native speaker myself, but I can tell the accent does not sound natural. Sarah Gadon does a great job (though she cannot pass as a 15 year old woman), but she doesn't sound Irish at all, so, why not hiring a Irish actress? All in all, if you don't mind details, you'll enjoy it. Go for it.Worth a watch.
mmlund2 The first episode has a great hook in it, and will peak your interest with mystery and murder in a historical setting. However, as the episodes progress, it becomes apparent that this series is a hard core bleak feminist view of the world, with all men depicted as cruel, abusive, foul, deceitful sexual predators. The series is ripe with the supremacist propaganda that females are the superior gender and the false premise that men have never been nor can they ever be respectful of women. One can remember the feminist outrage of how women have been historically portrayed in Hollywood as silly and dependent on strong superior men. Well, with movies like this one, the reverse is true, that all men are depicted as evil and women are morally superior in every way. The irony is that feminists that produce this tripe have become the bigoted monsters that they so hatefully despise.
Siddhartha14 Right out of the gate, this telling of Margaret Atwood's tale seems absurd. It doesn't improve much upon further watching. Atwood took a historical event and made it much more interesting and compelling than it probably was in real life. Chances are it's a sad, sordid, actual story wherein this girl actually did commit these murders and was a historical anomaly from that perspective as men committed most murders back then and still do today.
cheergal I was drawn into the era of story which I never read and was clueless. Its claiming based on true story certainly added another enticing element. And it did not disappoint me with its surprisingly well thought out storyline.In my view, Dr. Jordan's character was brilliantly put and relevant despite of its fictional nature hence the scenario could not be done without. The degree of truth in reality might not be followed through . However, it's not overly dramatized without merits.I am intrigued by Ms. Atwood's creativity to build the true event into such a logically unfolding and gripping story. I do not think there would be any diagnoses of multiple personality disorder exited or awareness even in 19th century. Yet, it displayed the causes of the horrendous crime at that time despite its half fictional story. What amazed me the most was the psychopathic killings of James McDermott's part explained Grace's being a unwilling accomplice which would fit into the modern murder profile of such kind. I would give Ms. Atwood two thumbs up on that. Once a while I enjoy well-crafted psychopath thrillers without overwhelmingly graphic images for a change. This definitely would be one of them.
