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.

A story of revenge and trying to right ones past.

I literally don't want to tell anyone a thing about this movie. I want them to go and experience it for themselves. So this review will be bare minimum and hopefully it'll entice you enough to go watch this movie!

I went in - as I do most movies - completely blind. I had no idea what this movie was. And what I had expected was so far from what this was. I was laughing most of the time I was watching this. When I had thought that this was going to be a serious film.

Hugo Weaving steals the show! I'm so use to him playing this mean and evil character in most of his roles, so for him to be in such a light hearted role was basically amazing. I literally couldn't wait for him to be on the screen again.

And Kate. I love Kate Winslet so much. And she did such a great job playing Tilly. You feel for her, even when you're worried about what her story might be.

I wouldn't be surprised if this film was nominated for multiple Oscars. The writing being one of them, the cinematography was great as well. The shots, and the editing, helped to grip audiences and keep them into the story of the film.

Honestly. I'm going to be telling everyone to go and see this film.
