Synopsis for Daniel Day-Lewis & Paul Thomas Anderson's Latest Collaboration

Synopsis for Daniel Day-Lewis & Paul Thomas Anderson's Latest Collaboration”

The film stars three-time Academy Award victor Daniel Day-Lewis (Lincoln, Gangs of New York), who is collaborating with Anderson again after 2007's There Will Be Blood.

Set in the glamour world of '50s post-war London, the film stars Day-Lewis as renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock and Lesley Manville as his sister. It seems fitting, and nearly inevitable now, that Day-Lewis would quit acting to pursue the profession of his final character. Together, they dress royalty, movie stars, heiresses, and socialites with the truly distinct style of The House of Woodcock.

According to a Universal press release, Phantom Thread is an "illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running".

Gathering to his side, Lesley Manville, Vicky Krieps, or Camilla Rutherford, Phantom Thread has also unveiled a first poster extremely elegant and classy. He is immensely grateful to all of his collaborators and audiences over the many years. I expect Phantom Thread will be no different. He was awarded his last Oscar for 2012's Lincoln, the Steven Spielberg-directed biographical drama in which Day-Lewis portrayed President Abraham Lincoln.

The actor previously took a five-year break from acting in the late 1990s, before returning to play the gang leader William "Bill the Butcher" Cutting in Martin Scorsese's Gangs of NY.

Phantom Thread is expected to be released in select theaters on December 25, 2017, before expanding wide in January 2018.
