Movie Review: The Dressmaker


The Dressmaker is a drama featuring Kate Winslet & Liam Hemsworth as the main characters.Other names on the bill include Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook and Judy Davis. The film focuses on the story of a glamorous woman who returns to a town in rural Australia. With her sewing machine and her style she manages to change the life of the women and she gets even on those who did her wrong in an attempt to discover the truth about her past. The Dressmaker is directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse (Proof, Unconditional Love) and tallied 12 wins and 24 nominations at different film festivals.

What I liked about this film is the fact that the plot unfolds while you watch and it is kind of different from the movies that came out during the last year. It is a drama, but one filled with suspense and some hilarious moments are there as well. By watching this film you will definitely be hooked until the very end. Well done for the cast, director and the writers for a film that is ballsy and tackles some important issues of the society. I would give a 7.5 out of 10 to The Dressmaker, for the reasons mentioned above.
