Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread” opens at Luxembourg cinemas this week.
Highly anticipated as the final film in which Daniel Day-Lewis will appear as an actor, “Phantom Thread” has an extra attraction for local audiences with Luxembourg actress Vicky Krieps (photo Focus Features) playing opposite the three-time Oscar winner.
Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, Day-Lewis plays renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock whose relationship with Alma Elson (Krieps) disrupts his creative flow. Lesley Manville plays Reynolds’s sister Cyril. The film is sumptuous and exquisite, with a deep and dark underbelly that explores the power struggles involved in trying to control love.
