The problem with The Dressmaker, both the book and the film, is that it doesn't know when or how to stop. One bizarre character after another is introduced. It's an eccentricity pile-up, played by a team of Aussie all-stars.

The whole premise of the movie is that Tilly doesn't remembers what happened. Eventhough I am sure that can happen, it seems very unlikely. And I somehow can't seem to get over the age gap between Winslet and Hemsworth and the lack of attraction between them. Despite of the great acting from all, I can't go any higher: 54/100.

A brilliant quirky story! Could have been captured even more banal. Still a wonderfully bizarre little town and Kate Winslet was right at home in it! Was kinda hoping it would end with the silo incident for the perfect irony, but I wasn't disappointed with how it did finish.

This movie is ridiculous! ...but in an entirely good way. Even with it's dark and heavy undertones, it manages to carry a lightheartedness that is so necessary. Otherwise it'd just be one sad mess. Enjoyable as a narrative and the performances are terrific. Especially Winslet with her accent and Liam as Aussie as you can be. Their age gap is a little distracting but you won't end up caring.

Love and loss. And good revenge.

The typical shoot-em-up climaxes of revenge thrillers can't hold a candle to the excellent ending here, as the just desserts are served in fabulous flambé fashion with ingredients like hash brownies, red carpets, costumes, arson, Kate Winslet, and pools of blood. The rest of the story is great too (save for a bit of sag in the second act romance) with its darkly comedic small-town-whodunnit vibe and memorable characters (love that the sargeant with a secret is given a meaningful arc).

Wow!! That was really, really bad. Almost nothing in the entire film comes off with the tonal effect that was intended. Creepy when it wants to be funny, funny when it wants to be serious. A rambling mess from a petty and vindictive mind.

Kate Winslet never fails to satisfy. A complicated movie with many light and humorous moments along with serious dramatic undertones. After exorcising her demons and exposing the towns faults the ending goes completely off the rails. Worth watching.

With its oddly charming characters and the grand setting, the Dressmaker was a fun ride from start to finish. Visually stunning, amazing performances by the cast, and a touching and funny story about revenge, good and bad fortune, and the petty grudges that can build up in a small society are the key elements that make this movie so enjoyable.

Darkly comic old style western revenge drama about dressmaking. Quite bizarre yet entertaining. Very Australian with a town full of colourful characters holding dark secrets.

A great movie, and an embodiment of what is or has been good about Australian cinema. If you ever liked an Australian movie for any reason, this wont disappoint.

I don't know what I was expecting from this but I definitely wasn't expecting that. This movie is everything! It's funny, depressing, silly, shocking, lighthearted and sad. I don't know if it's the Australian humor that was used here but I definitely loved it. I also loooved the cinematography, the costumes, the quirky/awful characters and the whole setting. And what can I say about Winslet? She's stunning as always! All in all a very enjoyable movie.

It's almost a good biting satire and dark comedy. Its last act goes too far and jarringly changes the time and stakes.

Haute couture western, the gowns are in place of revolvers. Also some silly stuff involving basically whole village. I was intrigued till the end. Albeit they could get someone younger than Winset and yet She does the job with flying colors despite her age.

Movie is not very Haute Couture, but I couldn't care less. I could watch Kate Winslet and Judy Davis for another hour. I don't think Sarah Snook gets the credit she deserves. She's a great newcomer.

This one is scattered for me. I liked the peculiar mood, but the main plot never came together for me, derailed more as it kept noing on.

When you laugh (to the point where you have to hold your stomach) cry, sigh and hold your breath within 2 hours I consider it a good movie. Winslet is stunning and I just loved this movie. *Very Good

A satisfying small-town tale that's packed with personality and eccentricity. Winslet's character bursts off the screen like the roles you only get to see a few times a year. The script is very sharp and the surroundings and cast of supporting characters add tons of colour in a uniquely Australian way. Moorhouse instantly enters the pantheon of Aussie kooks like Rolf de Heer, George Miller and Jane Campion, in spite of mild pacing problems in the film's second act.

After steeling myself to publicly purchase a ticket to a chick-flick entitled "The Dressmaker", I slunk into the sanctuary of the darkened theater and finally removed myself from behind my sunglasses and settled in. It was well worth it. Who'd 've thunk it would be a dark comedy pitting dress designers against each other in the down under part (i.e. Victoria) of The Down Under. Into this magnificently droll setting marches Kate Winslet's Tilly with sewing machine and other psychic baggage in tow
