New Film The Dressmaker (Audio)

By Charlotte Robinson, September 20, 2016
Film producer Sue Maslin talks about her new movie “The Dressmaker” starring Oscar winner Kate Winslet about a glamorous worldly dressmaker who returns to her small Australian hometown to seek the truth behind the scandal that banished her as a young woman. Set in the 1950’s this dark & camp comedy stars Kate Winslet as Tilly Dunnage who cares for her eccentric mother played by Judy Davis & schemes with the local cross dressing sergeant (Hugo Weaving) who becomes something of a buffer between Tilly & the town’s people who haven’t forgotten the tragedy they believe Tilly caused as a child that tore the town apart & led to her exile. “The Dressmaker” opens in theaters September 23rd. When asked what her personal commitment is to LGBT civil rights Maslin stated, “Well, I’m gay & I love seeing movies where you have kind of complex interesting female & male characters that are not just stereotypes. They’re that kind of movies that I like and the great thing about “The Dressmaker” is that it plays on a camp sensibility. So we have the gorgeous Hugo Weaving who plays Sergeant Farrat & he knows how to handle those fabrics & he does it with such humor as well. So I guess that sensibility of subversion comes from my perspective I guess of being a lesbian & engaging in popular culture. You like to put a twist in it when you get an opportunity.” LISTEN
