Set in 1950s 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.
This was the fourth collaboration between director Paul Thomas Anderson and film composer Jonny Greenwood.
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.
During a scene set in a hotel room a modern blue "Fire door keep shut" sign can be seen on a door in the background.
The title is the very first thing shown in the film following the production company logos. There are no other opening credits.
