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
