It’s finally here! The day we have been waiting for. NETFLIX has released their first original series, “VIVO.” This show is based on the famous novel by Margaret Atwood and will be ten episodes long. We are so excited to watch it! Here is everything you need to know about the VIVO Netflix release date, cast, plot, ratings, and more:
ABOUT VIVO MOVIE:
The show is set in a world where women have been subjugated and are considered property of the state. Emotionally detached, Offred (Elisabeth Moss) is the handmaid to Commander Frederick Waterford (Joseph Fiennes), one of the few remaining fertile men with which she has become pregnant during her previous term as a handmaid.
The release date was 3rd June 2021 for the VIVO. This has been running successfully since the last month.
Atwood’s novel has been translated into more than 40 languages, and the series is being adapted by American writer/producer Bruce Miller (The Handmaid’s Tale). The first episode of VIVO premiered on JUNE 3RD 2021 to rave reviews from viewers and critics alike!
The story is set in a dystopian future where fertile women are kept apart from patriarchal society and forced to serve as vessels for the childbearing elite. This show is set in a dystopian society where women are not allowed to read and have no rights. The main character, Offred (Elisabeth Moss), who has been enslaved by the government as a handmaid for Commander Fred Waterford’s household, must navigate her new reality with one clear goal to survive.
This show is set in a dystopian society where women are not allowed to read and have no rights. The main character, Offred (Elisabeth Moss), who has been enslaved by the government, is pregnant. She faces new danger when her child’s father (Max Minghella) and mother are taken by Gilead officials, making Offred question how much she can trust him. In the meantime, she’s faced with a difficult choice that could affect her entire life.
THE STARRING CAST:
- Elisabeth Moss plays Offred, Max Minghella plays Nick, and Yvonne Strahovski as Serena Joy
- MAX MINGHELLA: Max Minghella has been cast as one of the main characters in The Handmaid’s Tale. He will play Nick, a Guardian assigned to Offred. Max is best known for his roles on American Horror Story and The Social Network. His film credits include Shutter Island, The Social Network, and The Internship.
- MARISA TOMEI: Marisa Tomei has been cast as Aunt Lydia in The Handmaid’s Tale. “Aunt” is a moniker for a woman who teaches the handmaids how to behave, and Marisa will be playing that role. She recently won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress in My Cousin.
We had to come up with a story that could take place in the world of Gilead. We found one component we liked the idea of telling the story through Offred’s point of view as she remembers her life before this totalitarian regime took over.
The Handmaid’s Tale is set shortly when environmental and social ills have drastically changed life for everyone on Earth. A religious group called the “Sons of Jacob” takes control of what was formerly known as Boston with a terrifying swiftness; they now dominate society under Gilead, or so they tell themselves.
The series was filmed during the winter of 2016 in Toronto, Canada. They used several different locations which include Pinewood Studios for the exterior shots in Gilead, Unionville, and Markham. They also filmed at the University of Toronto for flashbacks, as well as Kingsway College School in Oshawa.
WHAT TO EXPECT:
“The Handmaid’s Tale is a dark, riveting exploration of power and its consequences,” says Deadline Hollywood about the series’ release on VIVO NETFLIX RELEASE DATE in 2021. “Despite some flaws (the lack of diversity among the cast being one), it manages to break new ground in the increasingly crowded field of dystopian sci-fi.”Details about other adaptations of Margaret Atwood’s novel are still forthcoming.
“The Handmaid’s Tale is a bleak snapshot of what life might look like shortly, and it leaves you with plenty to think about,” says Jill Soloway, creator of Transparent.
The Handmaid’s Tale is the most-watched TV show in VIVO NETFLIX’S history.” This was a really tough book to read, but I think it’s an important one for anyone interested in women’s rights,” says Jezebel about Margaret Atwood’s novel. But, the movie eased it all!
