'Alias Grace' brings hypnotic Margaret Atwood novel to Netflix

Sarah Gadon’s mesmerizing performance defines and elevates “Alias Grace,” a six-episode Netflix miniseries based on Margaret Atwood’s historical novel. Slow at first, the understated project gains momentum behind its central mystery, as well as Gadon’s star-making turn as the 19th-century heroine, which suggests her name should be much better known once people get through bingeing it.
