In 1950s London, imperious fashion designer Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) gained the focus to rise to his profession's peak through rigorous routine and the ability to regard the women in his life as wholly disposable. Drawn to ordinary waitress Alma (Vicky Krieps), he pulls the young naif into his lifestyle as a muse-and ultimately discovers that this Galatea can't and won't be summarily dealt with. Stylish character study from Paul Thomas Anderson co-stars Lesley Manville, Sue Clark. 130 min. Widescreen; Soundtrack: English.
