Nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director (Paul Thomas Anderson), Best Lead Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Best Supporting Actress (Lesley Manville)
Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (three time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.
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. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love.
With his latest film, Academy Award nominee Paul Thomas Anderson (Magnolia, There Will Be Blood, The Master) paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running.
PHANTOM THREAD is Paul Thomas Anderson's eighth movie and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
