Kate Winslet Is Goddamn Majestic In "The Dressmaker"


Posted on

More like Kate Slaysit because not only can she NAIL AN AUSSIE ACCENT but she is a force to be reckoned with!

Based on the novel by the same name, The Dressmaker follows Myrtle "Tilly" Dunnage as she returns to her home town of Dungatar.

Forced out of her home when she was 10 and accused of a murder she doesn't remember committing, Tilly returns to take care of her aged mother and to find the truth about her past.


Plus her chemistry between her onscreen mum, Judy Davis, is WONDERFUL.

Don't get us wrong, The Dressmaker isn't your standard film.

Full of twists, the film harks back to Aussie classics like Muriel's Wedding, subverting narrative structures and packing not one or two, but SEVERAL emotional punches.


Shane Jacobson co-stars in The Dressmaker. An earlier version of this post misnamed him because the author was too busy being slain by how fab Kate Winslet is to concentrate.
