Aro Recommended Dressmaker, The


Australia 2015, 118 minutes
Dir. Jocelyn Moorhouse
Rating: [M] Contains violence, sexual references and offensive language
Genres: Drama, Comedy / Girl-centric

Topics: Period 1950s, Fashion.


Aroview: Kate Winslet cuts a dashing figure (and a true-blue Aussie accent) as a talented dressmaker who returns home from Paris to the tiny isolated town of Dungatar where she transforms the women of the town while plotting sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.

Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, this genre-blender is alternately bitter, sweet and funny, and fashioned in rambunctious Aussie style by husband-and-wife team Jocelyn Moorehouse (PROOF) and PJ Hogan (MURIEL'S WEDDING). Judy Davis, and Hugo Weaving as a cross-dressing local cop, figure memorably among the "all-star" cast.
