Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:


Aunt Lydia: In the days of evil and anarchy 
you had freedom to, now you are 
granted freedom from. Don't underrate it. 

I haven't seen this version of Margaret Atwood's book since high school at least (and that was a long time ago, my friends) but my recollection of it is it wasn't great - it's being screened here in NYC at The Quad this Sunday and Monday as part of their series on the film's composer and I'm contemplating going to give it another look-see, what with the current Hulu series kicking all kinds of ass. Have any of you seen the 1990 film lately? Today would have been the 54th birthday of its star Natasha Richardson if she hadn't died far far too young in 2009.

I remember not liking it or thought it was boring but looking back I'm pretty sure I just didn't understand what I was watching. I'm sure I'd see it differently now.
