I'm Your Woman is an American neo-noir crime film released in 2020. It was directed by Julia Hart, of Stargirl fame. The screenplay was written by both Hart and Jordan Horowitz.

It is about a woman named Jean (Rachel Brosnahan) who is forced to go on the run with her baby after her husband (Bill Heck) betrays his "friends" in the mob. It is set in the northern United States, sometime in the 1970s.

I'm Your Woman includes examples of the following tropes:

  • Anti-Hero: Cal is something of this, as he is overall a good guy, but he is also somewhat morally ambiguous. He is very willing to kill others to protect those he cares about. Throughout the movie, his having a Dark and Troubled Past is hinted at.
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard:
    • Art (Frankie Faison) gets this treatment by the end. He's the one who first taught Jean how to use a gun. He also helped her with the baby.

    • Teri (Marsha Stephanie Blake) is also in the running for this trope applying to her, though her fate is not known. She taught Jean some things about food preparation, namely how to make better canned vegetables.
  • Tantrum Throwing: In the house where she and Harry are hiding out, Jean becomes so frustrated trying to fry eggs that she starts throwing them against the wall instead.
