Here’s another one that could be looking for awards come Oscar season – after all, Kate Winslet is a one-woman Oscar nomination machine. It also looks like it could be quite fun, and those who like Luke Hemsworth with his shirt off, should be pleased too.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘THE DRESSMAKER tells the story of the beautiful and talented Tilly Dunnage (Academy Award winner KATE WINSLET). After years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, Tilly returns home to a town in the Australian outback to reconcile with her eccentric mother Molly (Academy Award nominee JUDY DAVIS). She also falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy (LIAM HEMSWORTH), and armed with her sewing machine and haute couture style, Tilly transforms the women of the town, exacting sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.’
The great cast also includes Hugo Weaving, Caroline Goodall, Shane Bourne, and Kerry Fox. Take a look at the trailer below. It’ll be out in the US in September. [Read more…]
