Accused of murder when she was a child, a talented dressmaker (Kate Winslet) in exclusive Paris fashion houses returns home to a town in the Australian outback to reconcile with her eccentric mother (Judy Davis).

Armed with her sewing machine and haute couture style she transforms the women of the town, exacting sweet revenge on those who did her wrong 25 years earlier. Set in the 1950s.

Nominated for 13 awards in the Australian equivalent of the Oscars and the winner of five — three for acting as well as costuming and audience favorite.
