From director and writer Paul Thomas Anderson, Phantom Thread begins in 1950’s 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. A film full of lonely, solipsistic and impressively picturesque. Definitely one of the most powerful and resilient character, but he’s supremely complex and fascinating to observe.

There is no doubt that loving hurts and more when it is a love of the soul.
