I'm Your Woman ★★★
Starring Rachel Brosnahan, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Arinzé Kene, Bill Heck, Frankie Faison
A new perspective on organised crime, I'm Your Woman is a slow burning 70's drama in which Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) deals with the sudden disappearance of her husband and is well and truly thrown into the deep end.
The twists and turns begin within the first five minutes and never let up, even if it is at a steady pace. Although it felt like a middle of the road crime drama, the performances from all were solid, especially Brosnahan, who really takes you on her journey and is completely believable. As she learns more about her husbands misdemeanours, Jean becomes more confident and the story telling becomes ever grittier.
The middle third of the film sags slightly as I don't think we needed to know as much of the backstory as the film was offering out. However, as the credits roll (something that Amazon Prime gladly lets you enjoy without a trailer interrupting things), you are left looking back at how far this story came from the beginning, and just how quickly the time passed.
