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.
Shooting on this film was completed on April 26, 2017, the same day that Paul Thomas Anderson's close friend and mentor Jonathan Demme passed away from cancer. The film is dedicated to Demme.
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.
On his trip through the countryside when Reynolds stops to load gasoline, the lights of the pumps are on and in the next shot, off. Also by the ambient light it is evident that it was filmed at two different times of the day.
The title is the very first thing shown in the film following the production company logos. There are no other opening credits.
