The Dressmaker is a bittersweet comedy-drama set in early 1950’s Australia. Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet) is a talented dressmaker, but a misfit after returning home to the middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Armed with a sewing machine and a sense of Parisian style she sets about transforming the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong, while reconciling with her ailing, eccentric mother Moly (Judy Davis) and inexplicably falling for the pure-hearted Teddy (Liam Hemsworth). The red carpet screening for this film is on Friday October 16. at 7:00pm at Her Majesty’s Theatre.
