‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Is One of The Most Anticipated TV Shows in Years!

The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu | Lakeshore Records

Hulu’s upcoming “The Handmaid’s Tale” is one of the most anticipated TV shows in years!  Adapted from Margaret Atwood’s classic novel, the series premieres Wednesday, April 26 only on Hulu.

Here’s what critics are saying:

A faithful adaptation of the book that also brings new layers to Atwood’s totalitarian, sexist world of forced surrogate motherhood, this series is meticulously paced, brutal, visually stunning, and so suspenseful from moment to moment that only at the end of each hour will you feel fully at liberty to exhale. – Jen Chaney, Vulture

This is, in my opinion, the best adaptation to date, and it still stands as a deeply disturbing cautionary tale. We’d be foolish to ignore it. I can’t recommend it more highly. – Michelle Starr, CNET

In all my years of writing about television, no one series has affected me as much as The Handmaid’s Tale. – Alicia Lutes, Nerdist

None of this would work without a great performance at its center, and as Offred, Moss is astonishing. … At every corner, The Handmaid’s Tale brims with invention. – Todd VanDerWerff, Vox.com

This is probably the spring’s best new show and certainly its most important. – Dan Fienberg, The Hollywood Reporter

One of the best shows of the year so far, at times hard to watch but impossible to ignore. … [Elisabeth Moss] fully commands each and every moment, every swallowed emotion and thought. – Liz Shannon Miller, IndieWire

As a show, The Handmaid’s Tale is as crisply and elegantly made as anything I’ve seen on TV this year. It manages to bring a dystopian story to life in a way that works as episodic TV, sapping none of the book’s power. This is a show that could work anytime and one that will likely be watched and discussed for years to come. – Daniel D’Addario, Time

Moss’ barely-restrained fury over her new lot in life is gorgeous to behold–the other characters are equally compelling. And when we see moments that Offred simply cannot (one book diversion pertaining to Bledel’s handmaid character, Ofglen, comes to mind), that story amplification pays off. –  Kimberly Roots, TV Line

[Elisabeth Moss’] take-and the show’s take–on the character is a distinct blend of what Atwood once identified as the main thrust of Canadian literature (survival) and a gumption most closely associated with the country Offred once called America. This can cause some tonal clash in the voice-over–the mission statement that closes episode one feels like it belongs in a different show–but it also gives The Handmaid’s Tale the necessary verve for an ongoing series. – Eric Adams, The AV Club

* The One I Love Soundtrack Out Now, Genre-Bending Film Features Score By Multi-Instrumentalists Danny Bensi & Saunder Jurriaans

Jennifer Lilly’s editing is perhaps most crucial to making the increasingly complex narrative succeed, while the score by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans supplies an eerie undercurrent to the action, growing richer as the story unfolds.  –Variety

The One I Love (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) is available now from Lakeshore Records.  The score by Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans (PBS’ The Amish, Enemy starring Jake Gyllenhaal) follows the genre-bending film movie about a couple, Ethan (Mark Duplass) and Sophie (Elisabeth Moss), who go on a weekend retreat to save their marriage.  The duo have scored for numerous Sundance and Cannes Film Festival-winning movies.  “We were trying to do everything quite nontraditionally but full of character so that it would have a stark approach,” explained Bensi. “We like to do that for a lot of scores where the music will really be almost like one of the characters in the movie, so that’s what we made sure happened with this score right away.”  The One I Love CD will be available on November 11.

About the composers:
Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans, recently placed amongst On The Rise 2014: 12 Film Composers To Watch, are multi-instrumentalists and classically trained musicians. Bensi is an internationally raised cellist and composer, while the mostly self-taught Jurriaans (“I had a few classical guitarlessons”) dropped out of the Rhode Island School of Design and, after playing with a few pick-up bands and working some graphic construction jobs, reconnected with high school friend Bensi, with whom he formed the acclaimed rock band Priestbird. The band spent about six years recording (they have released five albums) and touring, evolving what can only be described as the ‘dramatic, cinematic’ blend of music to which both Bensi and Jurriaans are naturally attracted.
