Movie of the Week- Phantom Thread

This film hit a nerve, how does Daniel Day Lewis transform himself for his roles?! (By learning how to sew and construct a garment for a whole year). This film is both beautiful and telling of the power of creativity and inspiration. I love the concept of the muse in this film and how it can be both destructive and beautiful. Also Lewis’s character reminds me of some characters I have meant in the industry over the years, which makes me giggle….however, it’s not the 1950’s and people are not wearing couture gowns around the town!
