Moss is one of the best actresses working today, yet the quality of The Handmaid's Tale writing has suffered over the past two seasons. "The star does hard and good work with what she’s been given, even as it yields diminishing returns," says Daniel D'Addario. "But it’s a bit of a shame, too, that her time must be spent inhabiting a character knowable only through what she endures and how she endlessly emerges from it newly motivated, only to snap again, a cycle yielding less insight each time as it consumes the schedule of a star who might do a million other things. The role is purgatorial. And Moss is an actor who can, at her poignant best and with the support of a project whose overall vision is as clear as her own, eventually convince any viewer to believe in the divine."
