I didn’t know much going into I’m Your Woman. All I had seen was the first 30 seconds of the trailer.
I am so glad I took that route.
I’m Your Woman is a crime drama focused on the characters and not the crime. It is indie movie in all senses because of that, and it makes all the difference. Often the violence is off screen, but the reactions and realizations of consequences are on screen.
I’m Your Woman is not for everyone, but it is for anyone who wants to watch Rachel Brosnahan act very well, and Marsha Stephanie Blake swallow the screen whole.
- Man, the 1970s was a crazy time for fashion and home décor. Bonkers at the amount of yellow!
- Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) not knowing anything about her husband is a great surrogate for the audience not knowing any reason why she is running. I have not seen very much of Brosnahan, but this will make me more inclined to watch The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.
- I would HATE the neighbor Evelyn (Marceline Hugot). Way to friendly! Give me my space!
- The best visual moment in I’m Your Woman comes when Jean and Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) go to the disco and a shootout occurs. When Teri places Jean in the phone booth and the shot is just over her head as she is ducking in terror is worth a second watch. Terror going back and forth in front of Jean, and she is literally next to a phone but has no one to call (not that she would have the wherewithal in that moment but symbolically) but she has no idea who to trust or what is going on.
