'I Am Your Woman': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the Amazon Prime thriller starring Rachel Brosnahan
In her upcoming movie, Rachel Brosnahan takes on quite a different role. No longer the beloved comedienne that she is on 'The Marvellous Mrs Maisel', Brosnahan is back on Amazon Prime Video as the wife of a thief. Her life is upended when she suddenly has to flee for her life with her infant baby after her husband disappears on her. But it's when she's on the run that she discovers what she is really made of. In this tale of motherhood, family, betrayal and power, she discovers a new self.
'I Am Your Woman' is the opening night film at the upcoming AFI Fest and will arrive on Amazon Prime Video shortly afterward.
Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming '70s crime thriller movie.
'I Am Your Woman' will release on Amazon Prime Video from December 11, 2020.
According to the official synopsis of the movie, "Suburban housewife Jean (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 the job of keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake), and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie's criminal underworld. A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, 'I'm Your Woman' is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood, family, and what it takes to claim your life as your own."
