“Phantom Thread” To Sneak This Weekend

Focus Features has released a new teaser for Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread,” one that announces a special sneak preview run of the film in theaters in New York and Los Angeles from this Friday November 24th through the 30th ahead of the movie’s general release on Christmas Day.

Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock.

Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover.
