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.

Hogan is much better known, writing and/or directing Muriel’s Wedding, »
