The Dressmaker (2016/Broadgreen Blu-ray)

Picture: B+ Sound: B+ Extras: C Film: C

Jocelyn Moorhouse's period piece feature film The Dressmaker (2016) is a beautifully shot, superbly acted revenge-comedy that will appeal to more than just the fashion conscious or female crowd. The film features a great performance by Kate Winslet along with supporting actors Liam Hemsworth, Judy Davis, and Hugo Weaving.

Tilly Dunage (Winslet) is more than just a woman who is easy on the eyes, she is an exclusive Parisian fashion dressmaker and the stuff of local legend. When she returns to her hometown in Australia, she attempts to patch up her relationship with her mother (Davis) but ends up falling in love and changing a few lives along the way.

The Dressmaker is presented in 1080p high definition from its RED Epic HD shoot that looks surprisingly naturalistic, with a widescreen aspect ratio of 2.39:1 and the audio is a crisp-sounding English DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 5.1 lossless track with nice range and fidelity with a solid soundfield throughout. The storybook-esque colors are no doubt the basis for the color palette as much as the film feels has that feel.

An interesting film with some strong performances that is worth checking out, if you are a fan of the subject matter with better playback performance than most such films in its genre.
