(December 14) PHANTOM THREAD screening + Q&A w/ Paul Thomas Anderson
The Writers Guild of America, East
invites members and one (1) guest to attend a screening of
Followed by a Q&A with writer & director Paul Thomas Anderson
WGA Member Screening (RSVP Required)
Thursday, December 14, 7:30pm
This event includes a 30-minute post-screening Q&A. As a courtesy to Mr. Anderson, attendees are expected to stay to the end of the event.
Set in the glamour of 1950’s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants 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, Alma (Vicky Krieps), 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. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. PHANTOM THREAD is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.
