This starts off pretty much the way 2009’s Moon did, and, for a while, it takes similar directions. It’s about a robot “giving life” to a girl and taking care of her until the day what we took for granted turns out to be a lie, or an illusion. It’s a film that makes you question what you know or think you know. Have you been paying attention closely? Have you been listening?
For a movie about a teen, a woman, and a robot, it sure has a lot of dialogue and significant turnarounds. This is a fascinating script. In the wrong hands, this story could’ve been hard to keep up with. I Am Mother is a slow, poignant, beautiful, and contemplative science fiction film dark enough to be called horror. And, as simple as it is, it might require a second viewing.
The minimalist approach can work miracles when it comes to existential futuristic dramas. White walls and limited sets leverage budget, allowing casting agents to hire top grade actors like Rose Byrne and Hilary Swank. The most significant efforts went into the creation and motricity of Mother, the robot, a full-body suit. If you’re a fan of dark sci-fi, this is probably right up your alley.
