It's the 1950s. Confirmed bachelor Reynolds Woodcock is a famed London couturier, clothing the rich and famous. His business is a one man show on the design side. His genius can only be achieved within an environment which he controls to his complete sensibility. On the business side is his spinster sister, Cyril Woodcock, who maintains order within the household to allow Reynolds to work within his controlled environment. She will, however, not allow anything or anyone to upset the apple cart, including Reynolds losing sight that it is a business, and not just a means to design and create fashions solely for his own satisfaction without regard for the clients. That balance in their work/live relationship has the potential to take a turn when Reynolds meets waitress Alma Elson. She not only becomes his muse but his assistant and lover. The entrance of Alma into Reynolds' life and thus the business changes the balance between Reynolds and Cyril, especially as Alma has her own sensibility of herself in Reynolds' life and in his business, which is often at odds with that control that Reynolds and Cyril have worked so hard to create and maintain.

I have not read the book, but have seen the movie and liked it very much. I liked the movie more than the book because the movie had the feel of a stage play. There were so many scenes that just felt out of place, like the one where they were in the lift, or the one where they were in the bath tub. The plot was still interesting, though, and it was nice to see a movie about a man who was willing to kill himself, because he didn't feel like he could live in his own body. There was a lot of sexual tension between the two lovers, but I did not see that in the book. I liked the scene where they were in bed together, and the sex scene in the bathroom. The camera angle of the room was interesting. It was very well done. The sound was very realistic, too. All in all, I really liked the movie. I think it is a beautiful movie and will be one of my all time favorites.

As a lover of the British film industry and a fan of David Lynch, I was excited to see this film. I read the plot synopsis and found it to be intriguing. I found the film to be emotionally intense, but not overwhelming. I'm not a fan of Lynch's films, but this one was a nice break from the typical Lynch. I really loved the main characters and found them very believable. I would recommend this film to anyone who likes psychological thrillers and/or has an appreciation for David Lynch's work.

My wife and I enjoyed this film. I thought it was great - the story was interesting and the plot was complex and intriguing. There were lots of great performances from the cast. The film itself was very moving and it made me feel like I was actually in the story. This film is a must see for anyone who enjoys a good story.

This film isn't the typical rom-com with very little romance. It's actually about the changing of one person's perception of another, who may seem different to you at the start, but will change as you progress. I'm not going to reveal any details of the plot, as it's pretty difficult to explain, but let me just say that it's a very human story, where characters change and grow as the story progresses, and you can see their different perceptions of their own relationship. The acting is incredible and the chemistry between all the characters is incredible, it really feels real. It's also an excellent film that you can watch multiple times, I have and will.

The best thing about this movie is that it is about love. Not for a minute does it try to be a drama or a romance. It is all about the love between these two main characters. The plot is simple and elegant. The music is soothing, not too good and not too bad. I liked the scenes where they are sitting at the piano and the scenes where they are playing the piano. The scenes with the piano are really interesting and very beautiful. The dialogue between them is beautifully delivered. The score is good too. The performances are good. Hugh Grant is excellent as the main character, and so is Emma Thompson. I really like the relationship between these two characters, but I think that the ending of the movie is a little weak. I think that the movie is better than most people give it credit for.

I saw this film because I was a fan of both the film and the book. I love movies that break new ground. And what a refreshing break it is. It does not follow the standard story or genre. It is a truly original film. I am a bit hesitant about how I feel about it because I am not so keen on pure emotion. But after all, it is a film that is art. It is not a movie you will be pulling out of your home. It is a movie you will be thinking about afterwards. It is a film that requires the mind to think and consider the meaning of life, and to struggle with that meaning. To think about life in the midst of a universe that we all know and have known. But to make that thought possible and meaningful. The characters are real. They are not cardboard cutouts. You are allowed to know them. I loved it. I think the movie may not be for everyone. But I loved it. It was well done. I highly recommend it.

First of all, let me say that I'm not a fan of modern-day cinema. I'm also not a fan of romantic comedies, particularly the romantic ones. I do like love stories, but the majority of the romantic films that I've seen have been pretty lousy. But the recent "Phantom Thread" has been different. I really liked it. I think it was just different enough. It was one of the better films I've seen in a while, and it was good in every other way too. For example, the acting was really good. It was not that bad that I felt like I was watching a film with a director who doesn't know what he's doing. There were really good scenes, especially the one where the character works on his homework while being touched by a mysterious woman, and I really liked the fact that the relationship between the characters was realistic. I also really liked the cinematography. The music was pretty good, and the only problem I had with it was the way they shot the camera in the film. They didn't really know how to do it right. But, overall, I really liked the film. I can't believe I never heard of it before. If you're looking for a different film, I recommend this one. It's one of the better romantic films I've seen in a while. I would recommend it to anyone, regardless of what your tastes are. I give it an 8/10.

A masterfully wrought performance by Nicole Kidman. The scene where she and her husband are walking through the woods to get to their house in the city was as if I were being drawn into the story. I don't want to say too much about the film because I have seen it, and the only things I will say are, Nicole Kidman is a great actress. She is as dark and twisted as you would expect from this film, but she is still a beautiful, intelligent, and graceful actress. She carried this film so well. The other actors were also great. I loved the relationship between Phoebe and Simon, and how they started to see each other as real friends. The way they talked about Simon, their conversations were so genuine. The relationship between Simon and Phoebe was also really touching. It was really sweet. I have seen this movie many times, and I have no idea why, but I really love it every time. The movie was beautifully shot. It was so beautifully filmed that you could feel the story moving in front of you. The editing was also well done, and it was interesting to see how they were able to pull all of the scenes together. The film was shot so well. I recommend this movie to everyone, regardless of what your opinion of the film is. It is a good movie, and I am looking forward to seeing it again.

A prequel to a great movie, that is about the life of a woman who is in a passionate relationship with another man. Not sure if it is meant to be a film of the book, or a film of the book. I watched the film thinking it would be about her life, and instead found myself thinking about the life of the book. Maybe the movie was written for this purpose. If it is meant to be a prequel to the movie, then I don't understand why it was necessary to have a woman who was in a relationship with another man. Not that I don't like Emma Watson, but I don't think she was meant to be a great actress. I just think the movie should have been about the book.

Not since "A Star Is Born" have I been so taken by the beauty of a film that was so touching. Not because of the emotional content, but because of the beauty of the characters. There is a real vulnerability and depth to this film. The characters are more human than most movies make them out to be. The situations are much more realistic than most films ever dare to be. The films take place in a world that I never thought I would be in. The world that was portrayed in the movie was one I thought I would never see. The director does an incredible job at portraying the look and feel of this world. He makes you want to get into the character of the characters and they do a wonderful job with that. I really enjoyed the films length and pacing, it was just right for me. There are many ways to interpret the story of this film. I think the audience will enjoy the artistic integrity that goes into each character. The Director did an amazing job of writing, directing, and acting the characters. All of the actors did a wonderful job in portraying their characters. The cinematography was incredible. The way it was shot and the way it was presented was incredible. The music was fantastic and the use of the sound and camera movement were perfect. The dialogue was strong, smart, and interesting. It was a great balance of telling a story and letting the characters speak and interact. This movie was a perfect example of how one can film great films and not be concerned with the technical aspects of the film. The cinematography was amazing and the director did a wonderful job of creating an epic film. The story was unique and I was never bored, even when I was not watching the film. This is a film that I will watch again and again and hopefully I will get to experience it again. I think this movie is worth the price of admission.

To me, this movie was a bit disappointing. It had the typical love story, with the usual boys and girls trying to win the girl in the end. But I liked it for some reason. In spite of being a few years old, it still has a great message to it, and the art direction was beautiful, the costumes were fabulous, and the music is the best I have ever heard in my life. The actors did a really good job, especially with all the different roles, and the love scenes were really well made. I think the film was very well-made and thought-provoking, and the message I get from it is really powerful and beautiful. So I highly recommend it.

After hearing a lot of good things about this movie, I went to see it with my girlfriend. I'm happy I did, I think this movie is a must see. It is very realistic and romantic. This is my first review on IMDb, so forgive me if I don't get to all the details. I have read many reviews on this movie and I can't see how many people do not like this movie. I personally think this is a must see. The film is very easy to follow, it has great acting and the script is very well written. There are some very beautiful scenes in the movie and I really liked the song "The Time of Our Lives". This is a very beautiful movie. I think people should go to see it. I think you should go to see it, you won't regret it.

I think that the success of this film is partially due to the fact that the film makers tried to explain the reasons behind the supposed failure of the original trilogy. They went far enough to explain the themes of loss, loneliness and belonging. It is only fair that we understand that the trilogy was not just a way to have the franchise revive. It was also a way to open the eyes of a large audience to the social and emotional factors of loneliness and loss. All of these factors are intertwined in the film, and in my opinion, the film is far superior to the original trilogy. In my opinion, this is because the writers and director took a more realistic approach to the theme of loneliness, and understood that it can be replaced by the joy of belonging. As for the other elements of the film, I think that the acting was actually pretty good, the script was very well written, and the music was great. But, to me, the most important element of the film was the theme. The theme is what made me decide to watch the film. I can only imagine that many people who have read the book and want to see the film don't understand why it was so good. They also don't understand why they didn't understand the "movie magic" that was behind it. In my opinion, the theme was used to justify why people should go see the film, not because of any magic or special effects. I was surprised that the people who did not understand the film at all actually enjoyed the film. Overall, I give this film 8 out of 10. I have seen a lot of films, and this is one of the few that I have enjoyed.

This is one of the few films that was given to me as a gift. After I saw the film, I did not get the feeling that it was boring. I felt the love between the characters, the life story, the big moment. This film will make you smile, feel sad, and is something you will watch again and again. I am very impressed with this movie and can't wait to see it again!

This is my first review and i just want to say thank you to the amazing cast and crew. If you were a fan of the book and you can't wait to see the movie then please do not go to this movie. There will be a ton of spoilers in this review so I won't do it. The movie was amazing. It was so beautiful to see it, and the movie itself was fantastic. The movie was also moving. When i went to see the movie it felt like the last time i would go to a movie with the same emotions i felt while i was reading the book. I just had to go to see the movie, and I couldn't wait to see it. This is a very good movie. I recommend it to anyone who loves a good movie. I hope this review was helpful to you.

It's a very different type of movie. And that's the most important thing. The movie doesn't play with emotions. I am a very sensitive guy, but I loved this movie. The acting was great, the directing was very good, and the story was intriguing. It's a movie you should watch. It's very different from most movies, and it's a really good one. Not the greatest movie, but a very good one.

I don't usually write reviews, but I feel this film deserves it. This is definitely one of those films that feels like it really belongs in the Top 10. The acting is great, the story is solid and the direction is fantastic. There is a certain moment towards the end that really lifts the film up a notch or two, but it's the most important moment in the film. I know people are comparing it to that great Twilight Zone episode that was the "Bad Moon Rising" episode, but I think that story is much more realistic and much more touching than that, it's the point of the film. So if you're a Twilight Zone fan, you'll probably like this film, but for me, it really impressed me. It's got everything I look for in a film, a great story, great acting, fantastic direction, and of course, amazing acting. If you're a fan of Emma Thompson or Jude Law, you'll love this film, they really make you feel like you're in the time period. So if you like Twilight Zone, and you like films that are "grown up" than I definitely recommend this film. I hope this review helps!

A star-crossed lovers story with a gripping first half. The story is about a single woman who is an aspiring journalist. She has a difficult time deciding between two men who seem equally qualified for the job. The second half is a bit slow, but its a nice surprise. The story is solid and interesting. You don't get bored or bored. It also has a nice twist at the end. I gave it 8/10.

So I thought that if I hadn't seen this movie I would have never felt the need to write about it. It's a movie that requires so much concentration and I've found it difficult to watch it for a long time now. This is a movie that I can't wait to watch again and again. It's a movie that you have to watch with someone who knows the story and you have to watch the movie with them. It's a movie that takes a lot of time to watch, but once you have, you will be glad you've done it. A movie that you will have a hard time forgetting.

This film is excellent in every respect. It's well written and well directed. It has a good mix of genres, a good mix of characters and relationships, and a good mix of emotions and emotions. It's a great film and a must see for anyone who has ever thought about getting in touch with their inner feelings. The acting is amazing, the story is great, and the themes of love and loss and betrayal are excellent. But, this film is only one of those films that have the power to touch you deeply in a way that you don't even know you need to feel. I've experienced that feeling a couple of times. It's a film that will touch you in the most unexpected ways, and it will make you see things in a new way. I hope you see it, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. 8/10
