Wat je gaat doen

We're going to have a fun, informative, and hopefully lively discussion related primarily to the screen adaptation (featuring some highlighted clips) of various topics, including:

- does your opinion of characters such as Fred, Serena Joy, and Aunt Lydia change or evolve over time, or are they just plain evil?
- imagine the world pre-Gilead: 2% fertility rate, toxins in the air and water. What steps would you take to ensure that humanity lives on?
- the use of color in both wardrobe and set design and create an overall mood
- the back story and subsequent development of main characters, including June/Offred, Serena Joy, Commander Waterford, Aunt Lydia, and Nick.
- how Gilead suppressed a nation: from media black out to book burning to outlawing reading, and similarities to current countries implementing similar practices.
- looking ahead/predictions/possible plotlines: will handmaids be bartered/sold to Mexico? What will happen to Serena, after Fred reported her crimes? And will they both end up in prison, or will they continue to be the "Teflon Waterfords"? What will the aftermath of getting the children out of Gilead. And--what's June's next move?

In addition to the discussion of the Hulu show, we'll also snack on locally-made wine, soft drinks, and snacks. Bring your love of this award-winning book and screen adapation for an evening of fun and idea sharing.
Other things to note
This is an experience for die-hard Atwood fans as well as individuals with a more moderate interest in the books. It will be a way to exchange ideas, get answers to pressing questions, and have fun!

Dit is je host, Julie

Verhuurt sinds 2009 op Airbnb
  • Identiteit geverifieerd
I'm a graduate of Carnegie Mellon University, where I received a BA in Writing. My coursework included an in-depth analysis of "The Handmaid's Tale" well as several courses related to cinema critique and examination: set design, lighting, cinematography, screenplay, music/soundtrack, wardrobe.
"The Handmaid's Tale", despite the fact that it's more than 30 years old remains just as relevant today. The Hulu screen adaptation uses the novel as a springboard for a wonderful twist on the original!
