Paul Thomas Anderson returns to the big screen this Christmas with one of 2017’s most highly anticipated films, “Phantom Thread.” The film also reunites Anderson with three-time Oscar winner Daniel Day-Lewis, and will mark Day-Lewis’ final on-screen performance, who announced his retirement from acting earlier this year.
“Phantom Thread” is another period piece for Anderson, but this time he takes on London in the 1950s. Day-Lewis plays Reynolds Woodcock, a renowned dressmaker who falls for a strong-willed young woman played by Vicky Krieps. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Anderson said the film is “not your standard love story,” and cited Daphne Du Maurier’s celebrated novel, “Rebecca” as a source of inspiration.
