Review: I'm Your Woman



Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) is a 1970's housewife. In a voice over, she tells us that she and her husband, Eddie (Bill Heck) can't have children. One day, he shows up with a baby and tells her its theirs. Not so long after, Jean awakes to one of Eddie's colleagues telling her that she has to go on the run with Cal, (Arinzé Kene) someone she's never met before.

With all the mob movies out there, I can't think of another that comes from the point of view of the mob wife. That's essentially what this is. The film chooses to stay with Jean and not get into the detail's of Eddie's operation. The focus on her is what makes it interesting and it goes in a direction that feels very fresh.

Rachel Brosnahan is someone I love in The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel so I'm not surprised Amazon chose to use here here again. She spends the majority of this movie exhausted and utterly confused and she plays that well. My favorite performance is Arinzé Kene. This guy is so talented. Cal is a quiet guy that tries his best to do his business and help Jean with what she's going through. Without spoiling anything, we learn more about him later and I just loved him in this.

This isn't going to make my best list, but if you have Amazon Prime this is certainly worth the watch.

Recomended: Yes

Grade: B

Memorable Quote: "Let's just both do the best we can." - Cal (Arinzé Kene)

  1. This looks like a worthwhile film as I do like Rachel Brosnahan. She's also pretty funny.

    1. She is! Love her on Mrs. Maisel. She looks so much like Evan Rachel Wood when she's blonde though. They could be sisters.
