In Australian writer/director Jocelyn Moorhouse’s dark and quirky new film The Dressmaker, Academy Award winner Kate Winslet plays a savvy dressmaker (Till Dunnage) who returns to her rural Australian roots to uncover the truth behind her “notorious reputation.” Escandalo!
A high fashion fish-out-of-water, diving headfirst into a checkered past, all while giving major makeovers to the rough-and-tumble townsfolk? If that doesn’t have all the makings of a future gay classic, we don’t know what does.
And to add icing to the cake, Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) plays Kate’s local farm stud love interest. Sold.
Just take the last line from the film’s synopsis: “Armed with only her sewing machine and haute couture style, Tilly shows she is a force to be reckoned with and that revenge never goes out of style.” Someone show us the fastest route to the popcorn, and go double on the butter.
As if it were any real surprise, Hemsworth looks utterly dashing in these exclusive shots from the film, which hits theaters on September 23rd:
