The Dressmaker

  • Starring: Hugo Weaving, Judy Davis, Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth
  • Director: Jocelyn Moorhouse
  • Genre(s): Drama
  • Rating: R
  • Running Time: 119 min.

After years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet) returns home to a town in the Australian outback to reconcile with her eccentric mother Molly (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.

"There's plenty to admire here, especially if your taste is tailored to the unusual."
- Adam Graham, Detroit News
"Moorhouse's adaptation of Rosalie Ham's 2000 novel may lead audiences to expect a primmer, more well-behaved movie based on its title alone, but that doesn't mean it won't have them in stitches."
- Justin Chang, Variety
"The Dressmaker may be a revenge comedy, but it never quite conforms to our expectations of what that should mean. And that seems to be exactly how Moorhouse wants it."
- Marissa Martinelli, Slate
"The second Winslet sets her sewing machine on the ground and snarls, "I'm back, you bastards," we're delighted to hear we're in for something fun."
- Amy Nicholson, MTV
