Set for release this fall, it’s been a long wait for The Dressmaker. The film first premiered back at TIFF last year and is only now getting ready to march into theatres. Coming to us courtesy of Amazon and Broad Green, the 1950s set romantic drama stars Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth and according to reviews from the festival circuit, it’s worth getting excited over.
A new trailer for the film has surfaced today and gives us a good look at the Jocelyn Moorehouse-directed flick, as it follows Winslet’s titular dressmaker as she heads back home to Australia after fleeing from there several years earlier due to being accused of murder. With a cast that also includes Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, Judy Davisand Caroline Goodall, things are certainly looking good for The Dressmaker.
From the footage shown here, Moorehouse’s film appears to be an energetic romp filled with a lot of dark humor and a strong central performance from Winslet. Tonally, it looks a bit confused, but the end result will no doubt be a lot of fun for moviegoers.

A glamorous, worldly dressmaker returns to her small Australian hometown to seek the truth behind her notorious reputation. This dark and quirky comedy stars Academy Award winner Kate Winslet as Tilly Dunnage, who cares for her eccentric mother (Academy Award nominee Judy Davis), schemes with the local sergeant (Hugo Weaving) who has secrets of his own, and falls for local farmer Teddy (Liam Hemsworth). As she starts to unravel her scandalous past, she transforms the town’s women with her exquisite creations. Armed with only her sewing machine and haute couture style, Tilly shows she is a force to be reckoned with and that revenge never goes out of style.
