Kate Winslet’s ‘The Dressmaker’ Set for September Release

Amazon and Broad Green Pictures have set Kate Winslet’s “The Dressmaker” for a Sept. 23 release date in the U.S.

Variety reported exclusively last month that Amazon had bought the U.S. rights to the Australian film, based on Rosalie Ham’s best-selling novel, during the Cannes Film Festival.

The story follows a glamorous dressmaker returns to her hometown in rural Australia during the 1950s to reconnect with her ailing mother and exact sweet revenge on the community that banished her as a child. As her plan unfolds, she finds love with a local man and success transforming the town.

Liam Hemsworth and Judy Davis also star in “The Dressmaker,” which was a hit in Australia with the second-highest gross in that market last year after “Mad Max: Fury Road.” The movie has already grossed over $20 million internationally.

“The Dressmaker” premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival. Winslet won a Best Actress Award at the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards, which gave it 13 nominations. Jocelyn Moorhouse (“Proof”) directs.

“The Dressmaker” is the second film on which Amazon is partnering with Broad Green. The companies will also co-distributing “The Neon Demon,” the psychological thriller film directed by Nicolas Winding Refn with Elle Fanning, Christina Hendricks and Keanu Reeves starring, and have set a June 24 opening.
