In Hilary Swank, Rose Byrne and Clara Rugaard’s latest sci-fi / thriller, I Am Mother, Rudaard is a teenage girl who’s been raised by a kindly robot ‘Mother.’
Mother was designed to repopulate earth following the extinction of human kind. When an inexplicable stranger arrives with alarming news, Mother’s unique bond with her daughter is threatened…
Directed by Grant Sputore, I’m excited to see how the mystery in this story is resolved. There’s also the fact that great actor Hilary Swank said yes to this, so I really hope it’s a good Netflix movie.
Luke Hawker, Tahlia Sturzaker, Jacob Nolan, Summer Lenton, Hazel Sandery and Maddie Lenton also star.
What They Had stars Hilary Swank, Michael Shannon, Bythe Danner and Josh Lucas in a story about a woman who returns home and must confront her past after her Alzheimer’s-stricken mother wanders into a blizzard.
What They Had is written / directed by Elizabeth Chomko…
Considering the great cast, I’m quite sure this will be a good movie. The question for me is how badly I’ll want to see it bearing in mind the dark subject matter – and having already seen Still Alice (2014), a really good movie about dementia.
I probably will end up watching this as long as the mood strikes just right. It helps that Blythe Danner is a key character. I’ve always liked her ever since Meet The Parents (2000).
Taissa Farmiga, Aimee Garcia, Robert Forster, Jay Montepare and Anna Kabis also star.
