DIRECTOR: PAUL THOMAS ANDERSON

CAST: DANIEL DAY-LEWIS, VICKY KRIEPS, LESLY MANVILLE

One of the key scenes in Anderson’s evocation of the world of haute couture in postwar England takes place at a riotously colorful New Year’s Eve ball, but the film itself qualifies for inclusion in a holiday series by virtue of having the quality of a gift opening, with each scene unveiling new sensorial, sartorial pleasures. A battle of wills between dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), his sister, Cyril (Lesley Manville), and his muse, Alma (Vicky Krieps), Anderson’s movie, while only a few years old, has already taken on the burnished glow of a classic.
