Set in 1950's London, Reynolds Woodcock is a renowned dressmaker whose fastidious life is disrupted by a young, strong-willed woman, Alma, who becomes his muse and lover.
Before filming began, director Paul Thomas Anderson would often muse that this film existed in the same universe as Johnathan Lynn's "Clue," a favorite of Anderson's as a teen.
Reynolds has made my dreams come true. And I have given him what he desires most in return.
Dr. Robert Hardy: And what's that?
Alma: Every piece of me.
Dr. Robert Hardy: He's a very demanding man, isn't he? Must be quite a challenge to be with him.
Alma: Yes. Maybe he is the most demanding man.
When the countess arrives at the front door, the door knocker is heard so Cyril goes to open the door. The countess is climbing the steps and no one else is at the door to do the door knocking when Cyril opens the door.
The title is the very first thing shown in the film following the production company logos. There are no other opening credits.
