‘The Dressmaker’

dressmaker_xlgAdapted from Rosalie Ham’s very funny novel of the same name, The Dressmaker is hugely entertaining and quintessentially Australian – in spite of the lead played by Brit, Kate Winslet (The Reader, Titanic).

The 1950s outback is perfectly created, Tilly Dunnage’s frocks are glorious (as is Winslet’s command of the local accent), Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games) provides the beefcake – and Judy Davis (A Passage to India, To Rome With Love) as Mad Molly steals the show.

There’s comedy, pathos, tragedy and romance all rolled into one unabashedly entertaining feature.
