Rachel Brosnahan’s ‘I’m Your Woman’ Gets Encore Presentation at AFI Fest (Exclusive)
Rachel Brosnahan fans can rejoice because “I’m Your Woman” is getting a repeat screening as part of the 2020 AFI Fest.

The ’70s crime drama, from writer-director Julia Hart, will screen again on Oct. 22 after much demand. “I’m Your Woman” served as the film festival’s opening night selection on Oct. 15. The 2020 edition of the festival, sponsored by Audi, is being held virtually due to Covid-19 pandemic.

In a conversation about the film with stars Brosnahan, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Arinzé Kene and co-writer and producer Jordan Horowitz, Hart gushed about having her film debut during the fest.

“I’ve been an L.A. resident for 13 years now, and it is my adopted home,” Hart began. “I love it here so much — both of my babies were born here, I became a writer and a director here, it’s a very special place to me.”

AFI Fest Kicks Off ‘Very Weird’ Virtual Event With Rachel Brosnahan’s ‘I’m Your Woman’

AFI Fest Kicks Off ‘Very Weird’ Virtual Event With Rachel Brosnahan’s ‘I’m Your Woman’
It’s an annual ritual of awards season that comes around every fall: The American Film Institute’s AFI Fest arrives, studios bring out their awards movies to showcase them in front of a Hollywood audience, and every big premiere begins at least half an hour late because there’s lots of mingling, talking and speech-making before the movie starts.

Almost all of those things happened on Thursday night, as the 2020 AFI Fest kicked off with the opening-night world premiere of Amazon’s “I’m Your Woman,” the Rachel Brosnahan-led twist on ’70s crime movies directed and co-written by Julia Hart. The movie drew a capacity crowd, AFI president and CEO Bob Gazzale offered a welcoming speech, the filmmakers and cast raised a toast and talked about their movie, and it wasn’t until almost 8:40 that the film scheduled for 8:00 actually began.

Of course, all of this happened

‘I’m Your Woman’ Film Review: Rachel Brosnahan Finds Herself on the Run in 70s-Set Thriller

‘I’m Your Woman’ Film Review: Rachel Brosnahan Finds Herself on the Run in 70s-Set Thriller
Rachel Brosnahan stars as a young wife and mother who has almost no idea where she’s going next in AFI Fest 2020 opener “I’m Your Woman,” and director Julia Hart excitingly puts the audience in a similarly unpredictable position. It’s a road trip, it’s a story of a woman in trouble, and it’s about fleeing the scene of the crime, but the film refuses to follow the established path audiences might be expecting.

Many contemporary filmmakers shoot for that gritty yet personal sweet spot of 1970s “New Hollywood” honesty and intensity, but few have captured it with the finesse of Hart, who shares screenwriting credit with her husband Jordan Horowitz. A talented filmmaker who’s not being talked about nearly enough — her last two credits were the incisive and humane “Miss Stevens” and the arthouse superhero saga “Fast Color,” both acclaimed yet underseen — Hart has created a

‘I’m Your Woman’ Review: Gripping Rachel Brosnahan Thriller Will Keep You Guessing

‘I’m Your Woman’ Review: Gripping Rachel Brosnahan Thriller Will Keep You Guessing
You’ll be halfway through “I’m Your Woman” before its premise is clear, but the mystery is as gripping as its payoff. Director Julia Hart’s fourth feature pairs an engrossing turn from Rachel Brosnahan with a tense ‘70s-set script constructed with jigsaw precision. The full picture may amount to a contrived gangster story, but Hart (who scripted with her partner Jordan Horowitz) approaches that formula from the inside out.

I’m Your Woman” owes much to Brosnahan’s evolving performance as she goes from terrified housewife to trenchant survivalist over the course movie, and the movie consolidates the strengths of Hart’s previous work. Like her breakout Civil War script “The Keeping Room,” it finds women trapped in a man’s world, and forced to resort to violence as a means of escape. And like the lo-fi superhero drama “Fast Color,” its heroine goes on the lam before she truly understands what’s chasing her,

‘I’m Your Woman’ Trailer: Rachel Brosnahan Goes Mob Wife in Julia Hart’s Crime Thriller
After three Emmy-winning seasons of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Amazon has figured out nobody can work a period costume like Rachel Brosnahan. While “Mrs. Maisel” made Brosnahan a household face, she has yet to break out on the film side in the same way. While she’s appeared in films by Craig Gillespie and Joachim Trier, Brosnahan is leading the crime thriller “I’m Your Woman,” which positions her as a mob wife who becomes unwittingly embroiled in her husband’s affairs. “I’m Your Woman” is the opening night film of the upcoming AFI Fest, and Amazon has released a first trailer in anticipation of the film’s festival debut.

Per AFI Fest’s official synopsis: “Suburban housewife Jean (Brosnahan) lives a seemingly easy life, supported by husband Eddie’s (Bill Heck) career as a thief. But when Eddie betrays his partners, Jean and her baby are forced to go on the run,
