'Alias Grace' (Nov. 3)

Netflix
'Tis now the season of Margaret Atwood adaptations – first Hulu's Emmy-winning The Handmaid's Tale, and now Netflix's take on her bestseller about an Irish maid named Grace (Sarah Gadon) who works for a stern upper-class family in Canada. The household, however, seems to have surprisingly high mortality rate once the fair lass shows up – and though she's convicted of murder, the servant does not remember a thing. Only a handsome doctor (handsome actor Edward Holcroft) can help her regain her memory of the events. Director Mary Harron knows a thing or two about bringing complex books to the screen, having done American Psycho; actor, filmmaker and Canadian national treasure Sarah Polley is producing and cowriting it. This sounds like just the period-piece true-crime thriller you were looking for. DF
