Bloody Disgusting have got the first look and official synopsis of Hilary Swank’s Australian robot thriller I Am Mother.
Premiering at the Adelaide Film Festival, the film stars Academy Award winner Hilary Swank as a woman taken into an underground bunker when a cataclysmic event supposedly hits the outside world.
I Am Mother is the feature debut of Grant Sputore, and he’ll be directing from Michael Lloyd Green’s 2016 Black List script. The official synopsis can be found below, along with a picture of the film’s evil robot mom, and Clara Rugaard as the teenage girl raised by the metal matriarch.
“‘I Am Mother portrays a teenage girl (Rugaard) raised underground by a robot mother designed to repopulate the earth following an extinction event. Their unique bond is threatened when a blood-drenched stranger, played by Swank, is taken in by the teen, only to find herself at odds with her gear-and-piston parent. Overnight, the stranger casts doubt on Mother’s claims about the outside world and begins to unravel the fabric of their insular family. Unsure whom to trust, the girl begins to probe into Mother’s dubious nature and uncovers the truth of her greater mission.“
