    Revenge Is Back In Fashion

    Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, The Dressmaker is a bittersweet, comedy-drama set in early 1950s Australia. Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet), a beautiful and talented misfit, after many years working as a dressmaker in exclusive Parisian fashion houses, returns home to the tiny middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly (Judy Davis) and unexpectedly falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy (Liam Hemsworth), but armed with her sewing machine and incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really enjoyable but not what i was expecting Firstly i must say i loved this film. The trailer didnt really do justice to this film. It looks like a taming of the shrew type rom com. However its far more layered part comedy, part romance but mainly a reconing of a wronged woman by a cruel community. The costumes juxtaposed to the arid aussie bushscape is wonderfull.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not intriguing enough. I first saw this movie in an old theatre with bad sound an uncomfortbale chairs and being a little deaf, I missed words in some of the sentances. However, I decided to by the BluRay and watch it again at home and share it with friends. I loved it. Caught all the ocnversation i missed and laugh myself silly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Dressmaker I read had the book unfortunately missed the film when was showing in our local cinema release, next best thing get onto JB HIFI and get the product delivered to the front door within two days of purchase. Excellent film deserves all the awards it has received. Wonderful Aussie film !!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Train Wreck Apart from Kate Winslet's boldly infused tilt as Tilly this film was such a waste of the talent available. Couldn't decide if it wanted to be a poignant tale of parochial prejudices or just a pastiche of silly clichéd 'Aussie' caricatures.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Features i would recommend seeing the features first as this does give you a very good insight into aspects of the film e.g., the clothes, scenery,and why wide lenses were used etc. i certainly appreciated the film much more after seeing these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well worth watching on so many levels! I was pleasantly surprised by the performances of all the cast. A black sense of humour is a must! The social commentary really made me think on so many levels. A really enjoyable flick. Go ahead and treat yourself. :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Aussie Movie This is indeed a cross between the outback and something else. There were a couple of surprises. I tend to look at movies in terms of entertainment. Did this movie entertain me Yes it Did !!
