Phantom Thread is a 2017 American historical drama film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, set in London’s couture world in the 1950s. It stars Daniel Day-Lewis, Lesley Manville, and Vicky Krieps; it is reportedly Day-Lewis’s final performance in a film before retiring after four decades of acting. It is Anderson’s first film set and filmed outside the United States, with principal photography beginning in January 2017 in Lythe, United Kingdom. It is also his second collaboration with Day-Lewis, following There Will Be Blood (2007) and his fourth with composer and Radiohead member Jonny Greenwood.
In the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock and his sister Cyril 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, 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.
