Focus Features has revealed the official title of Paul Thomas Anderson’s next film as Phantom Thread.
The drama sees the acclaimed director reunite with his There Will Be blood star Daniel Day-Lewis (in what will be the three-time Oscar winner’s finale role before his retirement), alongside Lesley Manville, Camilla Rutherford, and Vicky Krieps.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running.
Phantom Thread is set for release on December 25th in the States, and on February 2nd in the UK.
