The Dressmaker: Movie Review

By: Lakwatsera Lovers

In 1951, Tilly Dunnage and formerly known as Myrtle (Kate Wnslet) returns to Dungatar, her tiny hometown after working abroad with great fashion designers. She came back for her alcoholic mother (Judy Davis) and also to unwrapped the mystery around her childhood days. She is back for revenge and is still searching for some answers on why her town insists that she is a murderer.

We are not sure on what to expect on Kate Winslet's latest featured film - The Dressmaker. At first, we though that it has a serious story mixed with a dramatic formula added with a bit of sleepy powder to make our eyes close at some point. Thank goodness, it isn't. It is a fun wacky revenge themed plot that manages to be silly yet entertaining and enjoyable throughout. It just have some questionable twist and turns that aren't necessarily needed, but they still managed to pull it through.

The casts were pretty impressive. Kate Winslet made a classy act and proves that she can still handle her thing. But it was Judy Davis, who stole most of the show. She came up with an outstanding performance; giving life to her character and builds a great chemistry with Kate Winslet to bring an enjoyable mother and daughter relationship. Hugo Weaving manages to generate most of the laughs with his colorful character and Liam Hemsworth provides the charm even its pretty clear that he is too young to play Kate's counterpart. We also don't want to forget the stunning Sarah Snook who looked like Emma Stone. 

Overall, The Dressmaker is a remarkable film, especially if you love fashion and style. It's a unique take for a revenge themed film with talented actors clearly playing like there were just having some fun. It is good to have something fresh in the cinema once in a while, and The Dressmaker is a perfect choice for you to experience something new.
