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 the film's title was announced, "Phantom Threads" was a name seen on several vans while filming some scenes on location.
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 tries the dress she puts her glasses on to take a look in the mirror. The next shot Reynolds is approaching her and she is wearing no glasses.
The title is the very first thing shown in the film following the production company logos. There are no other opening credits.
