PHANTOM THREAD | The Curzon Film Podcast
In this episode we get wrapped up in the fabrics and foods of 1950s haute couture with Paul Thomas Anderson's latest Phantom Thread.
Set in the glamour of post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion. 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.
Discussing the film are Irene Musumeci, Jake Cunningham and making his debut, writer for Little White Lies, BFI and The Skinny, Josh Slater-Williams
