The Dressmaker
An accomplished dressmaker named Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet) returns to her backwoods hometown in 1950s Australia, which she fled at a young age after she was accused of murdering a boy.

Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse and adapted from the novel of the same name by Rosalie Ham, The Dressmaker received its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival. ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    This was a weird one. It's not your typical narrative arc in the way it tells its story but it's entertaining and Kate Winslet delivers another juicy performance. It follows a woman whom feels the need to return to a place that has given her nothing but despair. She returns and fashionably cleans up the town while looking for answers to figure out if she is a murderer. Watch it because it's different and good not because it seems ok.

    Comedy and tragedy all mixed together

    When bad things happen to good people in a movie and the movie also has a large comic element, the movie gets called a "dark comedy." The Dressmaker is a mixture of the comic and the tragic, but it's not a dark comedy. It alternates between the very funny and the very sad, without any attempt to reconcile the two, just like real life. Kate Winslet and Hugo Weaving are great in their roles, as are the rest of the cast.

    I am a huge fan of Kate Winslet, who I feel is among the best actresses in the world. She shows why I feel that way in this intriguing and absorbing story about a woman who returns to her hometown after a long absence and in unique ways tries to right a series of wrongs done to her as a child. With generous portions of humor, this is a fine movie which fell through the cracks when released to theaters.

    Quirky, humorous and sometimes very dark movie about seamstress who was mistreated as child in the Australian outback and returns to exact her revenge in a very oblique way. Judy Davis is quite hysterical as her mother and the cast is excellent. There are some very dark elements along with some equally over the top episodes.

    I read some negative reviews but thought I would still like this, I was wrong.I always enjoy Kate Winslet and she's terrific in this as well. Liam Hemsworth, who is great to look at, also does a good acting job. what starts as a light comedy ends up with a big body count that was pretty jarring, and lost me as a viewer.

    the dress maker follows the story of a mature and very accomplished seamstress, when she returns to the land of her youth. Full of fashion, laughs, and resolutions of life experiences, for the main character as well as her home town, fully enjoyable, straight up movie bliss. watch it you'll see.
