Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Unfortunately, and despite its promising start, "The Dressmaker" doesn't move much beyond the level of well-costumed playacting.
Rotten: Kate Winslet can do anything ... except save this movie from quirky overkill.
Fresh: It might not all flow, but between Winslet and castmate Judy Davis's various spitfire moments and some potent dark turns, there's a fair amount to like.
Fresh: There's plenty to admire here, especially if your taste is tailored to the unusual.
I believe this is one of the best films I have viewed in a long time. The storyline has many twists and turns to maintain interest. It is a great comedic and dramatic film. Kate Winslet presents a Best-Actress level performance, and Judy Davis deserves a Best Supporting-Actress, as well.
Fun, Dark, Moving and Beautiful
Such an amazing movie - the cast is eclectic and hilarious, the story is engaging and entertaining with dark and twisted moments scattered throughout.
The Dressmaker is visually stunning, both in the costumes (of course) and the clever use of the play of the Australian sun.
Watch the film.
This is a great movie. I saw it when it first came out in Australia and thought it was a shame it didnt play all over the United States. The story's twists and turns will keep you interested and on your toes. This is a must see.
