Re: “A Forgotten The Handmaid’s Tale Movie Filmed in Durham Is the Missing Link Between Classic Novel and Hulu Hit

I also loved this movie when it came out. Having just recently rewatched it, I'm surprised by how many details from the book it actually got right. There's a lot to squeeze into a 90-minute film, but I think it did a decent job. It makes a good companion to the book and Hulu series -- some details differ, but it's the same broad strokes.

And the point about casting Duvall and Dunaway: completely agree! They fit their descriptions from the book much better than their counterparts in the Hulu series. It would be interesting to know what changes Atwood made to the script that Pinter disagreed with.

What a great story, thanks Allison! I remember seeing this movie in high school and loving it. I never made the connection with Durham in all these years. Severely underrated movie, I think.
