When Evan is clipping a newspaper photo and is startled by the clattering of a golf ball on the roof, the long shot shows he has cut roughly one-third of the way across the top of the photo when the ball hits, but in the immediately following close-up shot showing his reaction (wherein the scissors turn and cut off the top of his head in the photo) the remaining two-thirds of the paper above the photo are shown as having been cut. There was no time between the golf ball noise and his errant snip for him to have finished cutting across the top of the photo. See more »
Based on the best-selling novel by Rosalie Ham, this comedy-drama is set in early 1950's Australia. It's a vibrant tale of revenge, mother- daughter bonds, small-town secrets and the great power of clothes, in a movie that is both bittersweet and funny and is dominated by a stunning, multi-layered performance from Kate Winslet. Jocelyn Moorhouse's latest feature is enjoyable enough and so unexpected, and let's be honest she also has a great team to help her achieve that. In few words, "The Dressmaker" is a dark comedy in Australian style, that will catch many by surprise, especially if you love clothes and fashion in general. nikisreviews.com
