6 Oscar Nominations including Best Picture, Best Actor (Daniel Day-Lewis), Best Director (Paul Thomas Anderson) and Best Supporting Actress (Lesley Manville).
PHANTOM THREAD has already notched a passel of awards including Best Picture and Best Director—Boston Film Critics, Best Actor—Seattle, Philadelphia, Toronto and Vancouver Film Critics, Best Screenplay of the Year—New York Film Critics, National Board of Review; Best Musical Score of the Year—L.A. Film Critics. Daniel Day Lewis in what he says is his final performance, is just one of the many things that makes PHANTOM THREAD, from arguably our greatest director, Paul Thomas Anderson (THERE WILL BE BLOOD, MAGNOLIA, BOOGIE NIGHTS), such a treat. Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, PHANTOM THREAD focuses on renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville), who are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. R. 130 Min.
