Set in the 1970s, ‘I’m Your Woman’ is a crime drama that revolves around a woman named Jean (Rachel Brosnahan), the wife of a criminal who double-crosses his partner, forcing Jean to take her child and try to escape the vengeful clutches of her husband’s former associates. The early part of the film centers around Jean’s day-to-day experience as a restless housewife who has no idea when and if her husband will return.
After Jean goes on the run, she becomes acquainted with Teri, whose circumstances are quite similar to those of hers. Following its release, the film received mostly positive reviews from the critics, with many praising its focus on the character development and the performances of the main cast members.

The revenue that film tourism brings has convinced the city officials to build entertainment-friendly infrastructure and encourage the residents to acquire skills necessary to work in the industry. The latter has led to the emergence of a highly competent entertainment-based workforce. At present, the state’s Film Tax Credit Program offers 25% tax credits on total expenses if 60% or more of the principal photography of a movie is done in the state.
Furthermore, the film’s total budget has to be under $70 million to receive tax cuts. However, there are people in the state’s film community who feel that the number should be raised to at least $150 million to further grow the entertainment sector in the region. Some of the movies that have been filmed in Pittsburgh are ‘Happiest Season’ (2020), ‘The West Wing’ (1999-2006), and ‘Mindhunter’ (2017-2019).
