REVIEW: I Am Mother

Published

on

Over the past month I got to enjoy a few movies and am just getting to providing their reviews now, which includes Netflix’s ‘I Am Mother’.

It’s hard to pinpoint the why, but Rose Byrne’s vocal performance as the voice of mother was so fluidly impactful throughout the film that I cannot heap enough praise on how well it fit into the telling of the story.

From her caring and soft tone, even when delivering veiled threats, Mother is a voice that doesn’t show her hand, despite suspicion.

Daughter (Clara Rugaard-Larsen) seems eager to connect with Woman (Hilary Swank) who uses her own tactics of manipulation to steer Daughter where she wants her to go, for her own benefit.

The movie immediately puts the audience on defense, and in the position to judge every interaction, regardless of significance, as they try to decide which party is in the “right” without a true moral compass set in the movie’s environment.

Netflix really hit this one out of the park, because regardless of whom you side with throughout the film the unfolding events really challenge your position, and in the end you cannot help feeling misled in some way, shape or form.

A complete homerun for Netflix, with brilliant performances abound.
