Sarah Gadon | Alias Grace | Netflix 2017
"“Alias Grace” is a story about storytelling — one character compares Grace with Scheherazade — which makes Ms. Gadon essential to its success. She is mesmerizing. She plays Grace convincingly as a timid child and a toughened inmate, and she brings both of them to Grace’s wary testimony.
"Above all, “Alias Grace” is about how men abuse power over women, and how that power is always present, even when the men aren’t."
