Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.

"Anderson crafts another classic of obsession and strange love, played by dynamite leads: Day-Lewis retires in style, Krieps is revelatory. "
- Kevin Harley, Total Film
"Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread casts a remarkable spell; it wraps around you, like a delicately scented cashmere shawl woven from music and color and astonishing faces. "
- Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times
"Acting opposite Day-Lewis must give even the most confident actor pause, but Krieps proves to be up to the challenge. And Manville, perhaps best known for her work with director Mike Leigh, is spellbinding. This film will haunt you. "
- Calvin Wilson, St Louis Post
"On first viewing, the captivating strangeness of the mood and the elegant threading of the plot are likely to hold your attention, but later you can go back to savor the lustrous colors, the fine-grained performances and the romantic mystery that holds the whole thing together. "
- A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"What holds you throughout isn't just the picture's astounding craftsmanship but also its unsettling, exploratory vibe — the sense it conveys that you've seen something like it before, even as you assuredly haven't. "
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"The attention to detail, the use of certain colors, the lush and vibrant photography of the dresses Reynolds makes and the clothes he wears - they're honestly breathtaking."
- Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"Phantom Thread is the kind of film that's rarely made anymore - uncompromising, sophisticated and smart."
- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"It's an enchanting, eventually mischievous meditation on the lengths to which we go to control and camouflage our most intimate, undefended desires."
- Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
"Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day Lewis, both in peak form, use the fashion world to tackle the agony and euphoria of creation. Taking full measure of Phantom Thread may require more than one viewing. Our advice for now: just sit back and behold."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"This devilishly funny and luxuriantly sensuous film is so successful as entertainment that it's hard to stop and notice the extreme degree of craft that went into its construction."
- Dana Stevens, Slate
"Once again, Day-Lewis goes deep and has clearly done his homework. The 60-year-old actor doesn't seem to know any other way. In an era of tin-plated movie stars, the world of cinema will miss him."
- Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
