Alias Grace caught my eye because I watched another show inspired by one of Margaret Atwood’s novels, called The Handmaid 's Tale.

I chose to do so in the form of an interview because depending on the questions asked by the interviewer, the character, Jean Louise Finch, can fully reveal her current state of mind. In order to effectively portray Jean Louise’s shock, I tried to ask questions that show her disgust towards the racists and hypocrites. This task also aimed to outline Jean Louise’s confusion about her relationships with people around her. I attempted this by emphasizing her respect for Atticus and the romantic relationship with Hank, which intends to give a stark contrast between her previous fond relationships with her loved ones and the uncertainty she now feels towards them. I also expressed her unwillingness to stay in Maycomb to further highlight her disappointment and anger towards her hometown.
