The Dressmaker (12a)

Director Jocelyn Moorhouse. Drama (Australian)


Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, THE DRESSMAKER is a bittersweet, comedy-drama set in early 1950s Australia. Tilly Dunnage (KATE WINSLET), a beautiful and talented misfit, after many years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, returns home to the tiny middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly and unexpectedly falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy, but armed with her sewing machine and incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.

Starring Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Hugo Weaving


Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

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!

Good film but perhaps a bit drawn out. V funny in parts.

Plenty of laughs in this black comedy.
