LOS ANGELES (November 7, 2016) – Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet (Best Actress, The Reader, 2008) proves revenge is back in fashion in the dark and quirky comedy The Dressmaker from Amazon Studios and distributed in the US by Broad Green Pictures. Accused of murder when she was a child, a dressmaker (Winslet) returns to her small Australian town to seek revenge on the locals who did her wrong. Directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse (Proof, How to Make an American Quilt), the screenplay is written by Jocelyn Moorhouse & P.J. Hogan and based on the novel by Rosalie Ham. The Dressmaker also stars two-time Academy Award nominee Judy Davis (Best Actress, A Passage to India, 1984; Best Supporting Actress, Husbands and Wives, 1992), Liam Hemsworth (The Hunger Games franchise), Hugo Weaving (The Matrix, V for Vendetta), Caroline Goodall (The Princess Diaries) and Sarah Snook (Predestination, Steve Jobs).
The Dressmaker will be released on Digital HD on December 20, and VOD, Blu-ray™ & DVD on December 27. Special features on the Blu-ray, DVD and iTunes Extras include a Photo Gallery and two featurettes – “The Story” and “Designing The Dressmaker.”
A glamorous, worldly dressmaker returns to her small Australian hometown to seek the truth behind her notorious reputation. This dark and quirky comedy stars Academy Award® winner Kate Winslet as Tilly Dunnage, who cares for her eccentric mother (Academy Award® nominee Judy Davis), schemes with the local sergeant (Hugo Weaving) who has secrets of his own, and falls for local farmer Teddy (Liam Hemsworth). As she starts to unravel her scandalous past, she transforms the town’s women with her exquisite creations. Armed with only her sewing machine and haute couture style, Tilly shows she is a force to be reckoned with and that revenge never goes out of style.
