Screen Daily reports that Kate Winslet - whose official moniker at the Cinema Romantico offices is, of course, The Greatest Actress In The World - has agreed to star in director Jocelyn Moorhouse's adaptation of Rosalie Ham's Australia-set novel "The Dressmaker."
Cinema Romantico confesses to having no knowledge of this "Dressmaker" so we promptly hopped over to Amazon to check things out. As it happens, customer reviewer Redhead provides the necessary breakdown, deeming it an "Australian gothic novel of love, hate and haute-couture." That gets the noted Cinema Romantico roar(!!!!!!) of approval.
Readhead continues: "As Rosalie Ham's first novel unfolds, the reader can see, smell and move through Tilly's jumbled and dusty hometown of Dungatar - possum piss, old tyres, lavender flowers, chugging farm trucks, kids and wheat. Who will die, who will live? Who is marked for life? Who will explode out of their drab life in one of Tilly's creations? Who wears home-made ginghams under their uniform? Read 'The Dressmaker' and find out."
I wanna find out! I do, I do, I do! I wanna know if Kate Winslet wears home-made ginghams under her uniform!
