Liam Hemsworth and the cast of The Dressmaker coming to Melbourne for Australian premiere

On Sunday 18th October at Village Cinemas Crown in Melbourne, the cast of new comedy-drama The Dressmaker will be on hand at a red carpet premiere. The impressive line-up includes Liam Hemsworth and co-stars Judy Davis, Hugo Weaving, and Sarah Snook. What’s more is that the highly acclaimed filmmaking team will also be in attendance, including Director Jocelyn Moorhouse, Producer Sue Maslin, and bestselling author Roaslie Ham, who wrote the film’s source material of the same name.

The Dressmaker, which was shot entirely in Victoria, has been the centre of attention ever since it was selected for a World Premiere at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival on September 14th.

“The cinematic beauty and charm of The Dressmaker is a shining example of the talent and creativity that emanates out of Victoria. Film Victoria is delighted to have supported Sue Maslin and Jocelyn Moorhouse in bringing Rosalie Ham’s much-loved novel to life,” says Jenni Tosi, CEO, Film Victoria.

The lead cast and crew will also head to Sydney for a special Red Carpet Screening presented by Marie Claire on Tuesday October 20 at Event Cinemas George Street.

Opening in Australian cinemas on October 29, The Dressmaker stars Kate Winslet as Tilly Dunnage, a glamourous woman who returns home to the tiny middle-of-nowhere town of Dungatar to right the wrongs of the past. Not only does she reconcile with her ailing, eccentric mother Molly (Judy Davis) and unexpectedly falls in love with the pure-hearted Teddy (Liam Hemsworth), but armed with her sewing machine and incredible sense of style, she transforms the women of the town and in doing so gets sweet revenge on those who did her wrong.
