"Phantom Thread" is based on director John Paul Anderson's original screenplay about a 1950s' fictional London couturier, Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), who treats people like so many mannequins upon which to drape his designs. "Phantom Thread" is an Academy Award contender with six Oscar nominations: Picture, director (Anderson), actor ( Day-Lewis), supporting actress (Lesley Manville), original score (Jonny Greenwood), and costume design (Mark Bridges). The National Board of Review chose "Phantom Thread" as one of the Top 10 films of 2017.
