Movie Diary 9/26/2016

The Dressmaker (Jocelyn Moorhouse, 2015). The trailer for this movie is so cutesy it turned me off from seeing the film at SIFF this year. Turns out the thing is a lot more interesting than that. Moorhouse mixes moods with real daring, and some of the jokes draw blood. There’s much that is silly, too, in the Australian manner, but it makes for an interesting patchwork. (full review 9/30)
