Handmaid’s Tale

This show has often been criticized for overreliance on torture porn to hammer home its point. But “Ballet” centers patriarchal brutality of a different kind: the wearying, psychological horror of being trapped in a world that values only what your body can provide to men and hides its violence beneath a thin veneer of chivalry in public. You know, the kind of pedestrian misogyny that might seem more familiar to you or me.
