The actor says goodbye to the cinema with this project by Paul Thomas Anderson.
A little over a year ago, Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day-Lewis met, after the acclaimed There Will Be Blood , for a new duet film. The director then kept the secret on this project shot in England. We only knew it would be a story taking place in the world of fashion during the 1950s.
Since these first mysterious elements, it was learned that the feature film in question would be called Phantom Thread and that it would be the latest film by Daniel Day-Lewis , who announced that he wanted to retire as an actor last June. To become a fashion designer?
The trailer for Phantom Thread has just been dropped. Punctuated by Jonny Greenwood , the Radiohead artist who had already composed the music for There Will Be Blood and Inherent Vice , she is actually portraying a fashion designer who multiplies creations and intimate adventures until he meet the woman who will change her life (Alma, played by Vicky Krieps ) by becoming her muse. A love story, therefore, that should come out in “limited release” at Christmas in the United States. To be eligible for the next Oscars? In France, it will wait until February 14, 2018 to discover on the big screen.
