The Dressmaker


The Dressmaker Brief Information

The Dressmaker
The Dressmaker is a 2015 Australian revenge comedy-drama film directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, based on the novel of the same name by Rosalie Ham. It was produced by Sue Maslin, with a screenplay by Moorhouse. It stars Kate Winslet as a femme fatale in the titular role of the dressmaker, Myrtle "Tilly" Dunnage, who returns to a small Australian town to take care of her ailing, mentally unstable mother. The film explores the themes of revenge and creativity and was described by Moorhouse as "Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven with a sewing machine."

The project was first developed in 2000, and Ham wrote a treatment herself. After initial attempts failed, Maslin bought the rights to the novel and hired Moorhouse to direct and write the screenplay. Production took place in Melbourne and across Victoria, Australia in late 2014. The film had its world premiere at 2015 Toronto International Film Festival on 14 September 2015 and had a theatrical release on 29 October 2015 in Australia and New Zealand. It opened at the number 1 spot at the Australian and New Zealand box offices and became the second highest-grossing Australian film of 2015 and eleventh highest-grossing film of all time at Australian box office.
