I’M YOUR WOMAN is a crime drama set in the 1970s that follows a mother forced to go on a dangerous journey of cat and mouse while taking care of her baby.
The movie opens with a woman, Jean, in the backyard of a very expensive looking house. She narrates how she and her husband cannot have children and that she spends most of her time alone at the house. She tries to cut off price tags from her blouse when her husband Eddie comes home with a surprise. Eddie walks in with a newborn boy and says that he is theirs to raise and look after. Although Jean once wanted a child of her own, her dreams of motherhood had all but vanished. She reluctantly accepts her husband’s gift.
The movie cuts to Jean and the baby, whom she names Harry, and a loud knocking at their door. One of Eddie’s friends enters the house and frantically tells Jean to take the baby and run. The friend mentions something about Eddie’s line of work finally catching up to him, but he doesn’t elaborate. He tells her to meet Cal, and that he will protect her and the child.
Cal, an African American man who apparently worked with Eddie in the past, is a man of few words. He helps Jean and Harry settle into a new house but tells them not to talk to anyone, keep the door locked at all times, and only use the phone in an emergency.
Jean becomes worn down not only by worrying about her husband, but trying to learn to become a mother. A friendly neighbor offers to help her out, and Jean, despite Cal’s warnings, invites her into the house for dinner.
Harry starts crying, so Jean takes him on a walk. When she arrives home, there’s someone else in the house with them. She calls the emergency line and rushes over to her neighbor’s house to find her tied up and at gunpoint. The criminals demand to know where Eddie is, but at the last moment, Cal shoots them, and they go on the run again.
Jean feels incapable in many ways but is forced into motherhood in extreme conditions. Jean must face the truth about Eddie and come to grips with just how far she’s willing to go to protect Harry.
I’M YOUR WOMAN is an intense movie with lots of jeopardy and a few genuinely thrilling sequences that will have viewers on the edge of their seats. It also has some subtle pro-life themes, celebrates motherhood’s hardships and joys, and the importance of sacrifice. I’M YOUR WOMAN is a riveting movie about the lengths a woman will go to protect a child, along a similar vein to A QUIET PLACE, with a stunning, unique 1970s setting. Where this movie falls short is in some poor pacing, some one-note performances, and unnecessary foul language.
