The bare bones of ALIAS GRACE's ripped-from-the-19th-century-headlines story are true: Grace Marks (Sarah Gadon) was a young Irish immigrant and maid who was convicted of murdering her employer, Thomas Kinnear (Paul Gross), and his housekeeper, Nancy Montgomery (Anna Paquin), with stable hand James McDermott (Kerr Logan). James was hanged; Grace received a life sentence but was exonerated for the crime after spending 30 years in jail. In this drama based on the Margaret Atwood book of the same name, we focus in on Grace's imagined world, and the real-life history of a notorious woman at a time when being a woman, particularly a poor one, was a deadly condition on its own.
Starring Edward Holcroft, Sarah Gadon, Zachary Levi
