The Dressmaker is hitting on September 23rd, and if you haven’t heard much about it, make sure you put this one on your calendar.
The trailer will hopefully convince you on its own, possibly because of the cast, and possibly because of the quirky story, but if you aren’t immediately on board, don’t overlook the husband and wife writing/directing duo behind the camera.
Jocelyn Moorhouse directs from a script penned by her and her husband, P.J. Hogan, and you’re probably a fan of a fair amount of their work. The Dressmaker looks to be just the sort of film to capitalize on their talents.
Moorhouse doesn’t have a huge list of credits, but she did direct How to Make an American Quilt, which is a woefully undervalued film, especially if you look at specifically for the direction.
Hogan is much better known, writing and/or directing Muriel’s Wedding, »

Set for release this fall, it’s been a long wait for The Dressmaker. The film first premiered back at Tiff last year and is only now getting ready to march into theatres. Coming to us courtesy of Amazon and Broad Green, the 1950s set romantic drama stars Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth and according to reviews from the festival circuit, it’s worth getting excited over.
A new trailer for the film has surfaced today and gives us a good look at the Jocelyn Moorehouse-directed flick, as it follows Winslet’s titular dressmaker as she heads back home to Australia after fleeing from there several years earlier due to being accused of murder. With a cast that also includes Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, Judy Davisand Caroline Goodall, things are certainly looking good for The Dressmaker.
From the footage shown here, Moorehouse’s film appears to be an energetic romp »

"You can transform people... That's very powerful." Broad Green Pictures + Amazon Studios have released an official Us trailer for Jocelyn Moorhouse's The Dressmaker, starring Kate Winslet as a "glamorous woman" who returns to her small hometown in rural Australia. We actually featured the first trailer for this film over a year ago, last summer, since it was released in Australia back then. It's just now getting a Us release this fall, for anyone still interested in giving it a look. Liam Hemsworth also stars as the young guy she falls for in town, with a cast including Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving, Caroline Goodall, Shane Bourne and Kerry Fox. This almost seems like a dusty, down under version of The Devil Wears Prada. Here's the Us trailer (+ international poster) for Jocelyn Moorhouse's The Dressmaker, from YouTube: Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, The Dressmaker is a bittersweet, »
