Trailer: Kate Winslet As ‘The Dressmaker’ – Opens Oct. 29

Academy Award winner Kate Winslet stars in “The Dressmaker” as she takes on the dramatic role of Myrtle “Tilly” Dunnage, a woman who returns to her backwater home in Australia during World War II to look after a 17-year old niece who is having a delusional affair with an American soldier.


As the tag-line says, gossip and scandal are back in style once Dunnage returns, given her sordid past, which includes accusations that she killed a boy before she left to become a dressmaker in the high world of fashion. But now that she is back with fancy, big-city style, it is said that she can transform people with the magic of a makeover — and backwater Australia is a location where those in need of a makeover are not hard to find.

The Universal Pictures release, which also features Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving and Sarah Snook, is due to be released Oct. 29.
