The Dressmaker, Kate Winslet stars as Tilly Dunnage, in this really riveting film.
Tilly returns to her native Australian hometown, having been cast out as a young child, accused of murder. Tilly has become a very sophisticated dressmaker, her eccentric, alcoholic mother (Judy Davis) lives in a shack "up on the hill". Tilly wins the hearts of the local women with her fashion designs, and a local farmer. Until one day when the world turns upside down for everyone in the small town!
Tilly packs a powerful punch - what an ending!
Kate Winslet is one of my favorite actresses, and she does a fantastic job in this role.
Watch this one for sure!
