Just ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival, Netflix has released a new trailer for Alias Grace, its six-part limited series inspired by the true story of convicted murderer Grace Marks.
Sarah Gadon stars as Marks, a young, poor Irish immigrant and domestic servant in Upper Canada who – along with stable hand James McDermott (Kerr Logan) – finds herself accused and convicted of the infamous 1843 double murder of her employer Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross), and his housekeeper Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin).
Based on the award-winning Margaret Atwood novel, the series is written and produced by Sarah Polley (Looking for Alaska, Take this Waltz, Away from Her) and directed by Mary Harron (American Psycho, I Shot Andy Warhol). Zachary Levi (Chuck, Tangled, Heroes Reborn) and Edward Holcroft (Kingsman: The Secret Service, The Sense Of Ending) also star.
Alias Grace premieres November 3 on Netflix.
