Designer Reynolds Woodcock and his sister Cyril are at the centre of British fashion in 1950s London, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites and debutantes. Women come and go in Woodcock's life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship. His carefully tailored existence soon gets disrupted by Alma, a young and strong-willed woman who becomes his muse and lover. A star-making English language debut from Vicky Krieps, a film earning multi-award nominations for Lesley Manville, this sumptuous film is also remembered for its carefully controlled final performance from Daniel Day-Lewis.
