Nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Director and Best Supporting Actress.
With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson once again teams up with acclaimed actor Daniel Day-Lewis (for his final role before his retirement from acting) to paint an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running.
Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.
Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover.
Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.
