When it comes to director Paul Thomas Anderson's upcoming film, Phantom Thread, there's been so much that we don't know about it. We know that it will feature the final performance of Daniel Day-Lewis, who recently announced his retirement, and in the film, he plays a fashion designer in London during the 1950s.
Now today, we have a full plot summary that offers us our most detailed description of the story yet and it certainly sounds like Oscar bait. But let's be honest, any movie that invloves Anderson and Day-Lewis are Oscar bait! Check it out:
Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) 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. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
It's also said that the first trailer for the film will be released soon, so stay tuned for that! Phantom Thread opens on December 25th and expands in January 2018, courtesy of Focus Features.
