The DressmakerThe Dressmaker poster

A starry cast (Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis) assemble for director Jocelyn Moorhouse’s adaptation of the novel by Rosalie Ham. Winslet stars as Tilly, the dressmaker of the title, who returns home to 1950’s Australia to reconcile with her mother (Davis). She falls in love with Teddy (Hemsworth) and, using her skills, styles the women of the town and gets revenge on people who had previously done her wrong.
