BFFC Bonus Episode: ALIAS GRACE

Surprise! It’s a BFFC bonus episode! Kelly and Sarah watch ALIAS GRACE, the recently released Netflix miniseries helmed by not one, not two, but three awesome women. 
DIRECTED BY: Mary Harron
ADAPTED BY: Sarah Polley
BASED ON THE NOVEL BY: Margaret Atwood

They’ll discuss f*ckboys: then and now, the blurring of spiritualism and psychology, and how the viewer becomes an accomplice to the media they consume.

Note: The first half of this episode can safely be listened to if you haven’t seen or finished Alias Grace – second half delves into all the spoiler-y details if you have.
