The world premiere of Amazon Studios’ I’m Your Woman starring Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel)will open the online 34th edition of AFI Fest on October 15.
Julia Hart directed the 1970’s-set crime drama from a screenplay she co-wrote with Jordan Horowitz about a woman who is forced to go on the run after her husband betrays his partners, sending her and her baby on a dangerous journey.
Brosnahan stars alongside Marsha Stephanie Blake, Arinzé Kene, James McMenamin, Marceline Hugot, Frankie Faison and Bill Heck. Horowitz and Brosnahan produced the film.
“Now more than ever it is important for film festivals to create a platform for audiences to discover great films,” said Michael Lumpkin, director of AFI Festivals, “and I’m Your Woman is cinematic storytelling at its best.
“With a captivating and complex narrative of a woman on the run, director and writer Julia Hart takes us on unexpected journey that speaks directly to the current state of our world and the real meaning of friendship, love and family.”
AFI Fest 2020 will run online from October 15-22, 2020. The full festival line-up and schedule will be unveiled in October.
