The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel's fabulous Rachel Brosnahan is taking on a very different kind of character for her latest Amazon Prime Video project, and we're very much here for it. Set in the 1970s, crime/thriller movie I'm Your Woman follows Brosnahan's character Jean after she's forced to go on the run with her young baby following her husband's disappearance. Sound like your kind of movie? Read on...
What's I'm Your Woman about?
The film opens with Brosnahan's character, a seemingly lonely housewife named Jean, mysteriously being given a baby by her husband. But the mystery deepens when her husband disappears into thin air and she's told by his partners she needs to go on the run because people are looking for her.
Who stars in I'm Your Woman?
Brosnahan plays lead character Jean, while Flack and How To Build A Girl star Arinzé Kene plays Cal, a man who is tasked with looking after Jean and her baby. How To Get Away With Murder's Marsha Stephanie Blake and The Village's Frankie Faison also star.
Director Julia Hart spoke to Entertainment Weekly about casting Brosnahan in the film, explaining that as soon as she saw Marvelous Mrs. Masisel she knew Brosnahan was the perfect actor for the role.
"We had seen House of Cards, which she was amazing in, and then we started watching the first season of The Marvelous Mrs Maisel like the entire rest of the world. And we were like, 'Oh my God, that range.' That's the kind of actor we need to play Jean — someone who can believably go through the journey that she goes through, and we also thought it was exciting that it was such a different part for her than what she had done before. It also really helps that she loves babies. She's the only person I've met who loves babies as much as I do."
Is there a trailer for I'm Your Woman?
Yes, and Marvelous Mrs. Maisel fans will get to see a very different side of Brosnahan as Jean as she's forced to protect herself and her baby.
Watch I’m Your Woman on Amazon Prime Video from December 11.
