Premiering at TIFF ’19, I AM WOMAN now soon sees a release in Canada exactly a year later!
SYNOPSIS: 1966. Helen Reddy arrives in New York with her three-year-old daughter, a suitcase and $230 in her pocket. Helen had been told she had won a recording contract, but the record company promptly dashes her hopes by telling her it has enough female stars and suggests she has fun in New York before returning home to Australia.
Helen, without a visa, decides to stay in New York anyway and pursue a singing career, struggling to make ends meet and provide for her daughter. There she befriends legendary rock journalist Lillian Roxon, who becomes her closest confident, and inspires her to write and sing the iconic song “I Am Woman” which becomes the anthem for the second wave feminist movement and galvanises a generation of women to fight for change.
She also meets Jeff Wald, a young aspiring talent manager who becomes her agent and husband. Jeff helps her get to the top, but he also suffers from a drug addiction, which gradually turns their relationship toxic. Caught in the treadmill of fame and dependent on Jeff to manage her professional life, Helen finds the strength to take control of her own career and keep pursuing her dreams.
I AM WOMAN stars Tilda Cobham-Hervey, Danielle Macdonald and Evan Peters.

Quiver Distribution release I AM WOMAN Friday Sept. 11th, 2020 on Digital and On-Demand.
The Film follows the life of singer Helen Reddy (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) from the time she arrived in New York to her performance during the women’s rally in Washington years later.
This is one hell of a timely biopic. With women’s rights being a prominent topic today I Am Woman draws parallels between the 1960s and 1970s to the present, and all by focusing on one woman. Reddy is brought to the screen by Cobham-Hervey, who has a powerful presence and captures Reddy’s performance quirks completely. Tilda is surrounded by other strong cast members including Peters who plays Reddy’s husband and manager, and Danielle Macdonald who plays prominent music journalist Lilian Roxon.
I Am Woman screens at TIFF on Thu, Sep 5 at Elgin Theatre at 5 PM, Fri, Sep 6 at Ryerson Theatre at 2:15 PM, and Fri, Sep 13 at Scotiabank Theatre at 9:15 AM.
Rain and the cold can’t stop us! While this has been one of the chillier editions of TIFF ever, the show must still go on! Lots of amazing sightings as the Festival gets ready to hit a high-point this weekend! See the snaps!
After making a splash at Sundance, AMERICAN ANIMALS now will get an official release.
SYNOPSIS: American Animals is the extraordinary and thrilling true story of four friends who brazenly attempt to execute one of the most audacious art heists in U.S. history. Centering on unpredictable wild child Warren (Evan Peters) and aspiring artist Spencer (Barry Keoghan), two friends from the middle-class suburbs of Lexington, Kentucky, the film follows the duo through college life at separate universities, as adult pressures begin to weigh heavily on their futures. Realizing their lives may never be important, they organize the brazen theft of some valuable books from the special collections library of Spencer‘s college, including Audubon’s Birds of America, valued at $10 million. Enlisting two more friends, budding accountant Eric (Jared Abrahamson) and fitness fanatic Chas (Blake Jenner), the gang meticulously plots the theft and subsequent fence of the stolen volumes, taking cues from popular heist movies. But the thieves’ plans go awry, placing their bright futures in limbo. Unfolding from multiple perspectives, writer-director Bart Layton (The Imposter) elevates the heist movie to bold and thrilling new heights.
