Saturday Night Movie: The Dressmaker

A glamorous woman returns to her small town in rural Australia. With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.

Director: Jocelyn Moorhouse
Writers: Rosalie Ham (novel), P.J. Hogan 
Stars: Kate Winslet, Judy Davis, Liam Hemsworth 

1h 59 min
Comedy/drama (2015)

Musings:
A revenge filled drama with yes comedic undertones. Which is kind of interesting to watch.

Kate Winslet plays Tilly who was sent away as a child. She plays the part well. Anger and hate. Those bastards in that town sure did not make it easy for her. But she is back, and she wants revenge. And damn, she gets some.

First I did not see how it would play out as she made dresses for everyone, and it got sad, but it all ends well.

Of course I did not get how she and Liam could be similar in age, but eh, it works, he had a beard.

The townsfolk with the quirks are played well, and they are bastards.

I was surprised by this movie, I did not really know what to expect. But I like a movie that ends with a bang.
