60 Second Movie Review
After watching Judy, the movie about Judy Garland’s rise and fall in Hollywood, it seemed only natural that I follow it up with I am Woman, now airing on Netflix, and starring Tilda Cobham-Hervey. She portrays Australian pop singer, Helen Reddy as she rises to pop stardom while accidentally creating the anthem for the woman’s movement in the 70’s. The movie spans from 1966 as she struggles to start up a singing career, to 1989 as she and thousands of women march in Washington D.C. in the pursuit of women’s rights and the ERA.
The singing is as powerful as the message in I am Woman —reminding us of the many hits that climbed the charts during her long career. Instead of leaving the usual link to the movie preview, I’m going to leave you with the original invincible woman, singing “I am Woman” – a song that is as relevant today as it was then.
