Director: Paul Thomas Anderson

130 mins, USA, 2017, 70mm

This film screened 14th, 15th & 17th April 2018.

The beautifully constructed, impeccably performed, and now Oscar-winning Phantom Thread returns to the IFI for these 70mm screenings.

Paul Thomas Anderson returns to the theme of toxic masculinity, previously addressed in previous films including Magnolia (1999) and The Master (2012), here bringing it to the fore in a study of the shifting power dynamics at play between a trio consisting of couturier Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis in his self-professed final acting role), sister Cyril (Lesley Manville), her brother’s keeper, and his new model, muse, and lover, Alma (Vicky Krieps). Relationships take dark and unexpected turns in this lush, sensuous film.

Tickets for 70mm screenings cost €14/€13
