Today I traveled to Australia as I watched "The Dressmaker". This movie stars Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth. Kate Winslet is a woman who returns to her home from working in Paris. She's come back to see her mother. But she also has a problem on her mind. A problem from her past has been plaguing her and she needs to get at the truth of the matter. And in order to do that, she has to revisit old relationships and has to try to bring back memories that have been buried for years. This, for me, was an excellent movie. Parts of it are hysterically funny and others are difficult to watch. I came to care a lot for some of these characters and when a story can do that to me, I find that someone has done their job very well. Claudia

Not a great fan of drama. If things don't blow up in a spectatular fashion for no very good reason, I fall asleep!

hahahaha You sound like my nephew! Every time I brought him to the movie theater, he fell asleep. I learned quickly that I had to bring him to a movie that exploded a lot to keep him awake!

I also just saw The Dressmaker. Terrific movie. Hugo Weaving was excellent as the local cop with a taste for women's clothing.
