Fantastic sci-fi thriller
- I Am Mother review by ER
A nice small-scale sci-fi from Australia starring newcomer Carla Ruugard alongside American actress Hilary Swank (THE HOMESMAN / LOGAN LUCKY / MILLION DOLLAR BABY). This is a great little conspiracy thriller which can be work as an allegory for the price of national security. A girl (DAUGHTER) is raised by an AI, called Mother (ROSE BYRNE) that nurtures her through to adulthood after the extinction of the human race. Living in relative isolation the girl is given ethical exams by mother. With the arrival of a distressed stranger Hilary Swank's 'Woman' the Daughter's whol existence is brought under scrutiny. What lies beyond the doors to the complex where they live and is Mother protecting her from the truth or is she up to something altogether more sinister? Some neat riddles lie in plain sight for the solving, but don't get too caught up in the mystery - just go along for the ride. A satisfying mid-range sci-fi in the style of Moon and Anihiliation - this one works a treat.
