Winslet, Hemsworth, Fisher Join “Dressmaker”

Liam Hemsworth, Isla Fisher, Elizabeth Debicki, Kate Winslet and Judy Davis are all set to join “Proof” director Jocelyn Moorhouse’s romantic drama “The Dressmaker”.

Winslet’s character returns home to the remote country town from which she fled as a child after being accused of murder. Trying to make amends with her eccentric mother.

Initially ostracised, she soon liberates and empowers the town’s women with her quick wit and beautiful clothing – unexpectedly finding love and exacting sweet revenge on those who wronged her.

Also onboard are director of photography Don McAlpine (“Moulin Rouge”), costume designer Tim Chappel (“The Adventures of Priscilla”), production designer Roger Ford (“Babe”) and editor Jill Bilcock (“Elizabeth: The Golden Age”).

Sue Maslin produces and filming begins in Victoria, Australia in October.
