Set in the fashion world of London in the 1950s. It stars Daniel Day Lewis, who brings his intense acting style to his role in the film, which was billed as his final screen appearance. It was nominated in a number of categories at this year’s OSCARs and had considerable positive critical praise. It is the story of a London couturier who takes on a young woman who becomes his muse. It is a dramatic romance with excellent performances from all the cast, who are well supported by a marvellous score and outstanding cinema-photography.
"... I challenge you not to be grimly compelled by every minute of Phantom Thread."
