Kate Winslet, Mia Threapleton and Dominic Savage discuss the making of I Am Ruth

If you’ve seen it, you’ll know. The impact of Dominic Savage’s anthology series I Am… depends on something beyond even its roster of acclaimed female leads – luminaries such as Samantha Morton, Letitia Wright and Leslie Manville. It’s also the way each self-­contained episode devastates with its all-too-­realistic vignette of the female experience told in a way that teases out the very best from these talented actors. It could be mental health, toxic relationships or middle-age invisibility.

Created by Dominic Savage, I Am Ruth is the feature-length instalment of the female-led drama anthology series I Am. The series has won praise for exploring the experiences of women in emotionally raw, thought-provoking and personal moments. 

The two-hour programme has been developed and co-authored by Kate Winslet alongside Savage and will take a look at the pervasive mental health crisis affecting young people.
