the dressmaker

I don't watch a lot of movies because I'm
usually watching crappy tv series on dvd.

When The Dressmaker came out I really
wanted to see it at the pictures but
by the time I thought about it again 
it was already on dvd.

Anyway I had to buy it.

In 1950s Australia Tilly the dressmaker
played by Kate Winslet
returns to her tiny hometown to right the
wrongs from her past.
As she tries to reconcile with her mother
played by Judy Davis she falls in love
while transforming the fashions of the town.

Although the whole movie was a bit disjointed
(just my own opinion)
It was fun and very Australian and come on 
now who doesn't want to see Liam Hemsworth
without his shirt on!

I liked it enough to do a blog post about it
so I really must have liked it.

Have you seen it?

It's very reasonably priced on dvd so
I do recommend you grab one maybe 
to play while you're sewing?

I'll give it a rating of 3/5.


  1. I really wanted to see this so i am going to wait for it be for sale here. Just liked the sound of the story line and anything to do with sewing gets my attention anyway.

  2. UPDATE:
    Saw this a few weeks ago and loved it. A bit sad really but loved the clothes in it. Got a wind sewing machine just like the one in the film too. Made my very first dress on it back in 19 whatever
