Movie Info

In 1966, single-mother Helen Reddy (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) leaves her old life in Australia for New York and stardom, only to find that the industry's male gatekeepers don't take her seriously. Helen finds an encouraging friend in legendary rock journalist Lillian Roxon (Danielle Macdonald), who becomes her closest confidant. When ambitious aspiring talent manager Jeff Wald (Evan Peters) sweeps Helen off her feet, everything changes as he becomes both her husband and manager and relocates the family to California. With a strong push from Helen, Jeff secures her a recording contract and subsequent string of hit singles, including the iconic megahit "I Am Woman." Increased fame leads to added pressures on themselves and their relationship, forcing Helen to find the strength to take control of her own destiny. I Am Woman is the inspiring story of singer Helen Reddy, who wrote and sang the song "I Am Woman" that became the anthem for the women's movement in the 1970s. The film is a story of fearless ambition and passion, of a woman who smashed through the patriarchal norms of her time to become an international singing superstar.

Critic Reviews for I Am Woman

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • [T]he movie's considerable appeal is more unassuming, derived from the respect and affection of director Unjoo Moon's treatment and especially from the relaxed charisma of Tilda Cobham-Hervey's empathetic lead performance.

  • A cut above other genre entries.

  • This pedestrian biopic doesn't really convey the distinctiveness of Reddy's appeal, let alone package it in a way likely to trigger a significant revival of interest in a major star largely forgotten now.

    Dennis Harvey

    Variety
    Top Critic
  • I Am Woman unites Moon's solid direction with Cobham-Hervey's earnest performance to transcend its sometimes-corny dialogue to present a sincere, heartfelt love letter to one of the most iconic figures of second wave feminism.

    October 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • I Am Woman is conventional to a fault, recounting Reddy's musical trajectory with a rote complacency, never endeavouring to locate interesting swells in her personal narrative that could justify the effort.

    September 13, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • When Helen Reddy performs at a 1989 women's march at the end of I Am Woman, one almost expects to see a #PussyGrabsBack sign waving in the crowd.
