The 1990 film adaptation of the Margaret Atwood novel of the same name.
In a future America ruled by extreme Christian Fundamentalists, women have been stripped of their independence and are divided into classes; wives, aunts (spinster domestic workers) and handmaidens - the few women who have not been rendered sterile by pollution, who are placed with couples solely to bear children. Offred (Natasha Richardson) is one of these women, haunted by her past life and child.
