Set in the glamour of the 1950's post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock and his sister Cyril are at the center of the 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 until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma, 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 the scariest curse of all...love.

This movie is very slow and boring...the actors do the best they can with what they have to work with...the ending is quite bizarre...a strange choice for Daniel Day-Lewis as his final acting performance...the movie felt like a long, long spool of thread tediously unravelling...

I like this movie even though it is a strange love story, but with detailed action and beautiful music, I enjoyed very much.

If you want to see beautiful and elegant dresses of the same period, view a Dior collection. The wedding gown was lovely in the making, but never seen on the bride to be. One of the many disappointments in this story.

A semblance of a plot was hinted at and never adequately developed. The characters were cut from the same cloth.

The actors did their best to cope, but I wish that mushroom omelet had been more consumed and finished the job along with the movie.

As a long-time fan of Daniel Day-Lewis, I wanted to see this---his last film. I was so very disappointed. While the acting was fine and the photography and costumes were great, the story was awful. It was the kind of movie that when it ends you say, "That's it?" and are left feeling cheated out of two hours of your life!

The characters in Paul Thomas Anderson's movies are usually not very sympathetic. The characters in this movie are no exception. The sad part is the plot was weak.

Many interesting quotes from the film have been posted in IMDb ... thanks to the contributors. However, the film left out some good stuff from the extras that are as memorable:

From a deleted scene:

I never really like myself. I thought my shoulders were too wide. My neck was skinny like a girl. And I have no breasts. Except my hips are large than needed. My arms strong. But in his work, I became perfect. I feel just right. May be that’s how all women feel in his clothes.

Make way for Bonnie, she wears an evening gown of emerald green silk taffeta. The skirt held away from the hips with inverted tucks. The wonderful bodice is of black ribbon lace with a décolletage for displaying one’s favorite jewels.

Ellie wears a spring suit in a soft fog-colored wool in a subtle plaid, paired with a built-in waistcoat of straw colored lightweight herringbone wool. The lines of the cleverly cut jacket continue into the lines of the pencil-slim skirt.
===
And now it’s the turn of Alma who wears a renaissance inspired gala gown with matching evening cape rendered in smoked colored silk velvet with golden Hurd taffeta skirt and cape lining. The bodice' s front slashing details is set off with strings of graduated sead pearls and crystal accents.
====
Ingrid wears a dinner ensemble suitable for casual dinners with friends or first nights out on a tropical cruise. A romantic silk organza blouse and silk taffeta skirt, both in soft azure blue, are contrasted with black wool jersey bodice, shawl, belt and handbag. The result was an inevitable loveliness from the House of Woodcock.
