Women come and go through Woodcock's life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover.

Trivia

The typeface used for the credits is called Reynolds Stone and it was created by the English wood engraver, typographer, and designer Reynolds Stone, who was a close friend of the parents of Daniel Day-Lewis. When Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis were devising the character of Reynolds Woodcock, they agreed that they wanted the film to have a sort of "Reynolds Stone look," and the character's name, Reynolds Woodcock, was partly inspired by this as well.

Quiet and crackling
6 October 2018 | by cliftonofunSee all my reviews

Quiet movies are not usually my thing. I like pace and story and energy. But this film crackles in the quiet. PTA makes every scene feel like a battle, and the actors' performances rise to that challenge. It may be a quiet movie about a dress maker, but it is so much more - a battle of wills, a tension against each seam, a few characters slowly resigning themselves to something other than what they planned. If you described the plot, I would be like, "Really? That is the story?" After watching it, I can say it is not just a story...it is a great story.
