The Dressmaker (2015)

Directed by: Jocelyn Moorhouse
Produced by: Sue Maslin
Based on: The Dressmaker by Rosalie Ham
Casts: Kate Winslet, Judy Davis, Liam Hemsworth

In 1926 in the Australia outback town, a school boy dies in unknown circumstances. The only witness to his death, a school girl, Tilly  is branded a murderer and exiled from the town.

25 years later, Tilly (Kate Winslet) now an accomplished dressmaker returns to her hometown to take care of her mentally ill mother (Judy Davis) and take revenge.

If people take revenge by having guns and do some violent actions but Tilly has her own way in executing her sweet revenge to those who did her wrong. Let's prepare to see how Tilly with her glamorous and haute couture style beats the people in her hometown. This is a revenge back in fashion. Even the director, Jocelyn Moorhouse, described her movie as "Clint Eastwood's Unforgiven with a sewing machine."

A truly enchanting movie. Enjoyed every minute of it. I couldn't stop laughing and feel sad at the same time to see the mother-daughter relationship between Tilly and her mother and how mean their surrounding to them. Humour is there but so is the pain and sadness of lives destroyed by hypocrites.
