Film by Green '01 Set to Release on Netflix
I am Mother, a film written and co-produced by WCS alum Michael Lloyd Green ’01, will be released on Netflix on June 7. Set in the wake of humanity’s extinction, the movie tells the story of a teenage girl who is raised by a robot designed to repopulate the earth. The cast includes Hilary Swank, Rose Byrne and Clara Rugaard.
In a Sundance Review, editor Meredith Borders wrote, "The screenplay, from Michael Lloyd Green, was a Black List title, and it’s not surprising that it was considered one of the best unproduced scripts, a nervy combination of thoughtful and suspenseful, thinky science fiction that asks big questions of humanity’s purpose and direction, and of our peculiar relationship with the machines we’ve built to make our lives easier."
I Am Mother is the first feature film from director Grant Sputore.
Green is a screenwriter living in Los Angeles with his wife, Simone Boyce, a news journalist with NBC.
