I AM MOTHER (2019): The Thing I Liked…

In Netflix sci-fi movie I Am Mother, a robot ‘mother’ created to repopulate earth following human extinction must deal with an inexplicable stranger. A stranger who arrives with news that threatens her unique bond with her teenage daughter.

The intriguing premise and Oscar winner Hilary Swank’s involvement are the reasons I watched I Am Mother. Also starring Rose Byrne and Clara Rugaard, overall director Grant Sputore’s movie is an OK sci-fi mystery. It’s interesting enough even though it could have moved faster. The most engaging part for me is towards the end when the characters’ full truths are finally revealed. By this point it became quite clear to me why Swank had agreed to play her specific role. Her character’s precise predicament and emotional journey are truly interesting in terms of the general experience of being human.

I say watch I Am Mother if you’re curious. Though the movie is indeed a Netflix sci-fi film, it’s also better than other recent Netlix films of the shame genre. Namely IO (2019) and Extinction (2018). I definitely wouldn’t recommend watching those two unless you really, really absolutely have to.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of I Am Mother (2019)


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.

I Am Mother Release Dates: June 7th, 2019 (US & UK)…
