Director: Paul Thomas Anderson. Starring: Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, Vicky Krieps

This tale of obsession and self-doubt features what Daniel Day-Lewis has claimed will be his final film appearance. Celebrated couturier Reynolds Woodcock (Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Manville) are at the centre of the 1950s London fashion world, dressing royalty, film stars, heiresses and debutants with the distinct style of the House of Woodcock. But despite the many women in his life Woodcock remains a confirmed bachelor, seeking only companionship and inspiration for his work, and all under the protective eye of Cyril. That’s until he meets hotel waitress Alma (Krieps) who, young and determined, will turn his carefully tailored life upside down. In his second collaboration with Day-Lewis, director Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey and the women who keep his world running.
