YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE

Lynne Ramsay—the director of Morvern Callar and We Need to Talk About Kevin—is not particularly prolific, which makes her new film YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE an especially anticipated experience. Early audiences for this Cannes-winning work have been exiting the cinema exhilarated, unsure as to how literally to take the title’s directive, and struck with a fervent desire to see it again.

The film has been re-edited since Cannes, where Joaquin Phoenix won Best Actor for his work in the film, and Ramsay won Best Screenplay, an award she shared with The Killing of a Sacred Deer writer-director Yorgos Lanthimos. The film’s soundtrack is by Jonny Greenwood.

DANIEL DAY-LEWIS’ SWANSONG

We hope he changes his mind, but Daniel Day-Lewis has—for now—retired from acting.

The Hammer Museum completes its 2017 Contenders screening series with the highly anticipated PHANTOM THREAD, written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, and starring Day-Lewis —in his final role—as Reynolds Woodcock, a 1950s British couturier based on bits and pieces of BalenciagaNorman Hartnell, and Alexander McQueen (the messages sewn into the linings), but especially Charles James:

“The dresses created by Day-Lewis’s character and those James was known for possess statuesque, sculpture-like qualities wherein the manipulation of fabric is paramount… Like Woodcock, James, who viewed his work more as sculpture than articles of clothing, only parted with his confections when they were perfect, and he was perfectly satisfied—a reason why his clients frequently commissioned items years in advance.” — Alexander Fury*

Vicky Krieps co-stars as Woodcock’s muse Alma, and Leslie Manville as his sister and business partner Cyril. Anderson regular Jonny Greenwood composed the score.

Following the screening, the film’s costume designer Mark Bridges will participate in a Q & A moderated by journalist and filmmaker Matt Tyrnauer.
