Phantom Thread

Daniel Day Lewis becomes a renowned 1950s dressmaker at the heart of London’s fashion industry who finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love in Paul Thomas Anderson’s award-winning drama, Phantom Thread.

Hollywood newcomer Vicky Krieps stars alongside Daniel Day Lewis’ Reynolds Woodcock as Alma Elson, the dressmaker’s muse-turned-lover and is supported by a cast including Gina McKee, Lesley Manville OBE and Brian Gleeson.

Fashion designer and renowned tailor Reynolds Woodcock and his sister, Cyril, are at the centre of the 1950’s British fashion, catering to some of the most well-respected clients across the world. But when Reynolds’ head is turned by a strong-willed waitress and he offers her a role in the fashion world, will he be able to balance business and pleasure, or will his desire lead the company to ruin?
