There will be sewing. Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood) reunites with Daniel Day-Lewis for what is supposedly the actor’s final bow before retirement.

DDL plays renowned London dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock, a bachelor bound by routine and perfection. His ordered world is disrupted when he meets European waitress Alma (Vicky Krieps), who becomes his model, muse and lover, although their romance has all the warmth of an English winter. As finely crafted as one of Woodcock’s exquisite creations, Phantom Thread isn’t a fashion film; the haute couture is simply elegant window dressing for a brilliant and spellbinding Gothic melodrama in the tradition of Hitchcock’s Rebecca. Day-Lewis delivers an incredibly nuanced performance and is well matched by Lesley Manville, as Woodcock’s frosty sister and business partner.
