The Handmaid’s Tale is an amazing TV series about a woman named June/Offred who has to adjust to a very cruel and strict society. She is one of the very few women left in the world that are able to have children and because of this, she is kidnapped and is sent to a home that will use her body to have a baby. It is very dark at times, but a huge theme in the series is love. June’s main mission is to find her daughter who was separated from her and I find it is a beautiful storyline about a mother that will not give up no matter the possible consequences. I absolutely love this show as it is so suspenseful and unpredictable, you never know what is going to happen next. I also enjoy watching it as it is filmed in mostly Hamilton, Cambridge and Toronto and it is cool being able to see places that are familiar. In fact, the house Offred stays at is just on the corner of Aberdeen Ave. and Bay St. in Hamilton! This show can be hard to watch at times and it does have inappropriate content for kids, so I would say this show is more for a mature audience. I rate “The Handmaids Tale” 5/5 stars. @KyKy18 of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
