Is a period drama,based in 1950s London,around a famous dress designer Woodcock who finds a muse in Alma, a simple waitress and eventually gets smitten by her.
The film is a beautiful depiction of the couture world of a genius artist/ designer and his complex and greyish relationship with Alma which is open to interesting interpretations.
Cast – Daniel Day Lewis, Vicky Krieps, Lesley Manville
Director- Paul Thomas Anderson
I loved the period era setting, the old world charm, the beautiful costumes, super awesome performances by the three leads and the mixed & debatable tone of the story.
Phantom Thread was a very well acclaimed film of the year and in fact amongst the top ten of the year. It earned nominations in many categories in Academy awards , Golden Globe Awards and British Academy Awards .
