NYWIFT Industry Screening & Q&A: ‘I’m Your Woman’ with Julia Hart and Jordan Horowitz

Join us on Thursday, December 3rd for a screening and conversation with I’m Your Woman Director/Writer Julia Hart and Writer Jordan Horowitz


Suburban housewife Jean (2020 NYWIFT Muse Honoree Rachel Brosnahan, “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel”) 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, and Eddie’s old friend Cal (Arinzé Kene) is tasked with keeping them safe. After Cal mysteriously disappears, Jean befriends his wife Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) and the two women set out on a perilous journey into the heart of Eddie’s criminal underworld.

A decidedly female take on crime dramas of the 1970s, I’m Your Woman is a tale of love, betrayal, motherhood—and what it takes to claim your life as your own.
