The Dressmaker: Kate Winslet revenge dramedy acquired by Amazon

Posted on

The Dressmaker is all sewn up. Amazon Studios has acquired domestic distribution rights for the Australian comedy-drama starring Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth, EW has confirmed.

The film will hit U.S. theaters in the fall, after which it will be made available for streaming on Amazon.

Based on the novel by Rosalie Ham, The Dressmaker tells the story of a fashionable 1950s clothier (Winslet) who returns from Europe to her hometown in rural Australia to care for her sick mother — and settle some old scores. The cast also includes Hugo Weaving, Sarah Snook, and Judy Davis. Jocelyn Moorhouse directed and wrote the adaptation.
