Watch: Kate Winslet in Trailer for Australian Film 'The Dressmaker'
A film about love, revenge and haute couture. Yes, that is the actual tagline. An official Australian trailer has debuted for Jocelyn Moorhouse's The Dressmaker, adapted from Rosalie Ham's novel of the same name, starring Kate Winslet as woman trained in French dressmaking who returns to her grubby middle-of-nowhere hometown in dusty Australia. There she brings new life to the town and, of course, falls for a guy, played by Liam Hemsworth. This looks like an upbeat, fun-for-everyone charmer that will have you smiling more than laughing, but doesn't look so bad. Featuring Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving, Caroline Goodall, Shane Bourne and Kerry Fox. Only headed to Australian cinemas for now, take a look below.
Here's the first official trailer for Jocelyn Moorhouse's The Dressmaker, direct from YouTube:
Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, The Dressmaker is a bittersweet, comedy-drama set in early 1950s Australia. Tilly Dunnage (Winslet), a beautiful and talented misfit, after many years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, returns home to the tiny middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly (Davis) and unexpectedly falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy (Hemsworth), but armed with her sewing machine and incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong. The Dressmaker is directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, from a script by Moorhouse & P.J. Hogan. The film will be released in Australia this October, but has no US release.

It is about a tailor who find herself transformed into the people she fixes clothing for?

Ok, I'm sold. It's not that I'm going to rush to see it, but someday, yeah ... I like the contrast of Kate Winslet character to the rest of the place. While it holds, at least ...

LOL~! Not bad, indeed. I probably won't see this in the theatre and won't admit to watching it when it is on HBO.

Well, seeing's how I loathe the huge American-made silly comic book super hero movies of today, this looks right up my alley. This film has a great pedigree in the director Moorhouse and the wonderful actress Judy Davis. The rest of the cast is nothing to shake a stick at either. I just watched Winslet opposite Josh Brolin the other evening in Labor Day and both were just terrific. As was Winslet in The Reader of several years back. Plus, Sarah Snook is in this. I believe Ms. Snook is one of our best young actresses working today. Just saw her a night or two ago with Ethan Hawke in the very trippy film Predestination. She was excellent. It will be nice to see her work in this with Winslet and Davis and Hugo Weaving et al. So, I'm in. A nice, small film not made in America with the current bunch of mediocre American actors playing to the crowd and doing the same thing over and over again. Sans Margot Robbie, that is....lol...she's not even American, is she?

Kate Winslet is looking stunning as always. she is certainly up for her 7th nomination, either for Steve Jobs or for The Dressmaker
