Daniel Day-Lewis will act no more. The double Oscar-winner is calling it quits following the release of Paul Thomas Anderson‘s Phantom Thread (acting takes too much out of him, apparently). You could say that he’s ‘calling it a Day-Lewis’.
We’ve already seen the well composed trailer for Phantom Thread – and below is the new poster for much anticipated flick.
I’m not feeling this poster, it’s too generic – one for this masses, I guess.
Set in the glamour of 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. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
Phantom Thread hits UK screens on 2 February 2018.
