    As you can see in the trailer below, the long-destined adaptation of Naomi Alderman’s 2016 novel, The Power (read an excerpt here) looks fantastic, not least because it stars the divine Toni Collette.

    I’m glad this one is a series (on Amazon Prime) and not a feature-length, as the nuances of Alderman’s story of supernatural teen-girl empowerment should not be crammed into an hour and forty-five minutes. The first of ten weekly episodes in season one airs on March 31.
