18 years have passed since the previous directing project of Jocelyn Moorhouse. "The Dressmaker" is therefore an interesting venture, the more so as it combines stylistically different genres of melodrama, grotesque, comedy and western. Despite the seeming contradiction, Moorhouse perfectly combined the story of childhood trauma, enigmatic murder of the past and mocking elegance against the background of the Australian province of the 1950s. Myrtle "Tilly" Dunnage (Kate Winslet) is a beautiful and elegant designer who made her career in Paris showrooms. After 25 years, he decides to return to his hometown, from which the inhabitants banished her many years ago. As a little girl, she was accused of causing a tragic accident. But what is Tilly's return to the Australian province connected with? Is it driven by a desire for revenge, concern for mother (Judy Davis), which the inhabitants of the town call "Mad Molly", or perhaps the desire to settle accounts with the past?

As in any small town, here in the Australian province we have a small local community that hides its own secrets and has its own rules. No wonder then that the return of the once-persecuted main character raises considerable sensation among the residents. Especially when it turns out that talented Tilly sews wonderful creations that become a hit among the hostile women. Will the external transformation into an elegant lady also cause their inner metamorphosis?

Playing Tilly, she had the opportunity to show the full spectrum of her abilities. In an instant he can transform himself from a woman emanating sex appeal into a melodramatic, simple girl from the neighborhood. She did not show off her talent for her couple of actors, Judy Davis, as a grumpy and ill mother Tilly and Hugo Weaving as a local sergeant with a shameful secret.

Also noteworthy is the supporting role of Sarah Snook, who played the ugly duckling turning into a swan thanks to Tilly's talent.

An important element of the production is the breathtaking beautiful Australian scenery, to which the elegant costumes sewn by the main heroine fit neatly. The women who dress in elegant dresses look grotesquely against the background of wooden houses and a poor town. The amazing music by David Hirschfelder is a perfect complement to the climate. The whole was made at a high level, and the way Moorhouse made an interesting combination of seemingly contradictory film genres makes it difficult to determine in which direction the next story will go. .
