The Handmaid's Tale. Three episodes in and it's starting to feel like a documentary.

It's excellent. I read it as a young girl, I had a fantastic influential aunt. It's complicated because it's not a straightforward " sisterhood". In fact it's not a straightforward anything. If they do it properly it moves you through all sorts of emotions & " truths". It's a book that made me question myself. However the abuse of women and men ( to perhaps a lesser extent..questionable) is being done very well so far.
The demonstration scene was so terrifying. Edited, of course..the way they've used music is pretty good too:)
