Based on Rosalie Ham's best selling novel, The Dressmaker is the story of femme fatale Tilly Dunnage who returns to her small home town in the country to right the wrongs of the past. A stylish drama with comic undertones about love, revenge and haute couture.
Roger EbertFull Review Above Average ...for a while, "The Dressmaker” pays off with its out-of-nowhere developments, until it collapses into a pit of death, destruction and despair. I can't say this is the best film you will see all year, but I can assure you won't see another one like it again for a long time.
NY PostFull Review Terrible ...the movie's tonal lurches are bizarre and inexplicable, and a flashback to 25 years ago might be the stupidest resolution to a murder mystery I've ever seen on film.
Rolling StoneFull Review Average The problem with The Dressmaker, both the book and the film, is that it doesn't know when or how to stop. One bizarre character after another is introduced. It's an eccentricity pile-up...
Rex ReedFull Review Average The real stars are the colorful costumes created by Marion Boyce and Margot Wilson, but they're not enough to save the movie at large. The Dressmaker is threadbare before Tilly's first taffeta strapless comes out of the trunk.
