Digging Deeper

Amazon’s I’m Your Woman starring Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel) is a dramatic thriller about motherhood, family, female empowerment, and personal transformation.  A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I’m Your Woman is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood — and what it takes to claim your life as your own.  This subversive thriller transports audiences into the stylized nostalgia and social barriers of 1970’s America.
In the film, suburban housewife Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends his wife Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld.  Through the cat and mouse on-the-run sequences, we follow Jean with her newborn baby as she evades her husband’s criminal past with the support of unlikely alliances (Cal and Teri) that bring her strength as the luxuries of her former life are stripped away. Her relatable struggle to take control of her life and realize her own power and potential, empowers audiences to rally behind her, and recognize her formidable strength.
I’m Your Woman opens in select theatres on December 4th (Cleveland TBD) and on December 11th on Amazon Prime Video. It is rated R with a running time of 120 minutes.
