The Dressmaker

by Jocelyn Moorhouse Gala Premieres

It’s the 1950s and after years of working as a seamstress for the exclusive fashion houses of London, Milan and Paris, the stylish beauty Myrtle ‘Tilly’ Dunnage returns to her hometown in Australia, where she was driven out as a youth. Welcome to the middle-of-nowhere town Dungatar. Armed with her sewing machine, the exceptionally gifted femme fatale confronts her past and begins a campaign of sweet revenge. She quick- wittedly brushes aside the old dispute with her mother, ‘Mad’ Molly, gains the trust of the suspicious villagers through her craft – and appears to go weak at the knees for Teddy, a real Adonis of a man. THE DRESSMAKER is a bittersweet comedy that delights with its wonderfully depicted protagonists and allows Kate Winslet, Judy Davis, Liam Hemsworth and Hugo Weaving to shine.
