The second offering from the Penticton Art Gallery and Penticton Western News’ Kitchen Stove Film Series is the Australian film The Dressmaker, based on the novel by Rosalie Ham.
A glamorous woman and accomplished dressmaker, Tilly Dunnage, returns to her small town in rural Australia to take care of her mentally unstable mother. But this return comes with a burden of being rumoured to have killed a child, hence her departure in the first place.
With her sewing machine and haute couture style, she transforms the women and exacts sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.
Written and directed by Jocelyn Moorhouse, The Dressmaker stars Kate Winslet, Judy Davis, Liam Hemsworth and Hugo Weaving. The film is showing in Penticton Oct. 20.
