I Am Mother
Grant Sputore's exciting feature debut takes the nature vs. nurture debate into a vast underground laboratory. Clara Rugaard gives a star-making performance as Daughter, a young adult whose only companion since birth has been Mother, a caring and compassionate robot programmed to re-establish the human race following cataclysmic events. But Daughter is curious about what lies beyond her hermetically sealed world. The arrival of a wounded woman (Swank) triggers tense and unpredictable events. Visually stunning, emotionally rewarding and with memorable voice work by Rose Byrne as the titular character, I Am Mother tells a gripping tale of lineage, loyalty and trust.
