You’re quite a handful.
Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, the renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock and his sister are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes, and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. The film has numerous awards and nominations, including six Oscar noms.
