Phantom Thread (15)
March 2nd - March 3rd
BORDERLINES FILM FESTIVAL 2018
1950s London: Reynolds Woodcock presides over an elite fashion house, making haute couture dresses for society women who can afford them. He works alongside his strong-willed sister Cyril, whose sway extends into his romantic life; as Reynolds tires of each new love interest, she helps to cut them out of his existence. The pattern changes when he becomes wholeheartedly transfixed by waitress Alma, whom he instates as his lover and muse. Reynolds absorbsher into his life, regardless of fit. When Alma rebels against the constricted routine, the pair find themselves in dark, uncharted waters. Reuniting Daniel Day-Lewis, in possibly his final acting role, with director Paul Thomas Anderson (There Will Be Blood), this is a masterful, immersive drama, set off perfectly by Jonny Greenwood’s hypnotic orchestral score.
