Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, THE DRESSMAKER is a bittersweet, comedy-drama set in early 1950s Australia.

Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Hilarious and outrageous black comedy concerning intrigues, jealousies, spitefulness and injustice in a small rural community in the Australian outback of the 1950s. You won't have seen anything like this film before. A treat.

Kate Winslet & Judy Davis are terrific

slow-burn film but fizzing 2nd half. Audience really enjoyed it overall. Plus attracted 2 under-16s coming on their own who enjoyed it too!
