"We will bear no more".
With those words Hulu's TV remake of The Handmaid's Tale is probably one of the most eerily timely series to tap into the mood of the country (and world), especially women, at this moment in time.
Based on Margaret Atwood's 1985 novel of the same name, that was also adapted as a movie in 1990, the story takes place in the dystopian near-future ruled by a totalitarian and Christian-fundamentalist regime.
The use of the word 'Object' has a clever double meaning, it's how the Handmaids are regarded as mere property, but also hints at these women opposing and protesting their treatment.
Fans of Elisabeth Moss can also enjoy all these Mad Men TV series billboards, and we know how the worm turned in that period drama.
This new Hulu series also features the talents of Orange is the New Black's Samira Wiley, The Leftovers Ann Dowd, Yvonne Strahovski, Max Minghella, Alexis Bledel and more besides, so it should make for dramatic viewing on the streaming service.
Let's hope in real life things never get this bad for women in the land of liberty and the free, in fact, it's up to us to make sure it never does. Object. Resist.
