The Phantom Thread
by West Norwood Free Film Festival
The West Norwood Free Film Festival are proud to present a screening of one of the most critically acclaimed films of the last 12 months… Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread.
As part of Fest Norwood we will be screening this multi Oscar nominated feature starring Daniel Day Lewis, Vicky Krieps and Lesley Manville.
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.
Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.
Women pass through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across young, strong-willed 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.
We are most honoured and grateful to be returning to screen Phantom Thread at Volcano Coffee Works (Parkhall Workspace Business Centre) after they have previously hosted us full capacity screenings of Death of Stalin, Paterson and Get Out.
West Norwood has now been treated to two Free Film Festivals during 2017 and one during 2018. Featuring cult classics, art house favourites and new releases, the volunteer-run festival is holding a special screening as part of Fest Norwood.
No ticket is required – seating is first come, first served. Doors open at 7.30pm and the film starts at 8pm.
