Liam Hemsworth doesn’t normally get to keep his Australian accent, but since the forthcoming film The Dressmaker is set on his home continent, he no longer has to hide. He stars alongside Kate Winslet, who plays a dressmaker returning home from jobs in Paris and Milan to care for her sick mother. With her dressmaking skills, Winslet smartly outfits the women of the town, but her dark past—a rumored murder—keeps the townspeople from getting too close. Except for Hemsworth, that is: He can’t seem to get close enough.

The Dressmaker hits theaters Oct. 22, 2015. Watch their romance bloom in the trailer below:
