Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth Couple Up in The Dressmaker ... Based on the book by Rosalie Ham

Im not sure why Ive not heard of the book and its book-to-movie transformation starring Kate Winslet, Liam Hemsworth and Hugo Weaving. The novel by Australian author Rosalie Ham was published in 2000, the film premiered at TIFF, opened in Australia last month and has a November 20th release date in the UK. Here in the states the movie is slated for release sometime this year but this year is fast coming to an end and Ive heard word NONE! My British librarian friend Irene Acton @ireneacton386 clued me in, she said shed seen the trailer and couldn’t wait for the movie. Im watching the trailer for the first time now but Kate Winslet? A period costume drama? Whats not to love?

Heres the rundown on the book from Penguin Random House

A darkly satirical novel of love, revenge, and 1950s haute couture—soon to be a major motion picture starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth

After twenty years spent mastering the art of dressmaking at couture houses in Paris, Tilly Dunnage returns to the small Australian town she was banished from as a child. She plans only to check on her ailing mother and leave. But Tilly decides to stay, and though she is still an outcast, her lush, exquisite dresses prove irresistible to the prim women of Dungatar. Through her fashion business, her friendship with Sergeant Farrat—the town’s only policeman, who harbors an unusual passion for fabrics—and a budding romance with Teddy, the local football star whose family is almost as reviled as hers, she finds a measure of grudging acceptance. But as her dresses begin to arouse competition and envy in town, causing old resentments to surface, it becomes clear that Tilly’s mind is set on a darker design: exacting revenge on those who wronged her, in the most spectacular fashion.

Lets watch ...

Who wouldnt want to be Tilly Dunnage?! Now all I need is a US release date.
