Set in the glamour of 1950s post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the centre of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutantes and dames with the distinct style of The House of Woodcock. Women come and go through Woodcock’s life, providing the confirmed bachelor with inspiration and companionship, until he comes across a young, strong-willed woman, Alma (Vicky Krieps), who soon becomes a fixture in his life as his muse and lover. Once controlled and planned, he finds his carefully tailored life disrupted by love. With his latest film, Paul Thomas Anderson paints an illuminating portrait both of an artist on a creative journey, and the women who keep his world running. Phantom Thread is Paul Thomas Anderson’s eighth film, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.

Lucky follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town. Having out lived and out smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self exploration, leading towards that which is so often unattainable: enlightenment. Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch's directorial debut "Lucky", is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on morality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

For a whole hour, the filmmaker Samuel Maoz feared his daughter was dead. That’s how long it took to get hold of her, after an attack on a bus in which she might have been sitting. That uncertain hour, twenty years ago, was the worst thing he had ever experienced – even worse than his war experiences, which he tackled in his masterful debut, Lebanon (2009).

Foxtrot takes this personal trauma as the starting point for a story about the Feldmann family. Father Michael and mother Daphna learn at the start of the film that their son Jonathan has died on military service, as a guard at a deserted border post. The facts prove to be a lot more complex. In three stylistically different parts, Maoz tells the story from the perspective of father, son and mother. All three dance a foxtrot with fate. A dance with many variations, but ‘no matter where you go, you end up where you started’.

Like her debut, Songs My Brothers Taught Me (2015), Zhao set this film in rural South Dakota (USA). Promising bronco rider Brady recovers from a serious head injury. To again shine in the arena seems out of the question, but he doesn’t want to admit this to himself, his gambling addict father or his macho friends just yet. 

Realistically shot, the story gradually becomes more poetic, developing into an intimate portrait of a restless, insecure bronco buster forced to reinvent and accept himself. Interactions with his severely paralyzed friend Lane, his headstrong sister and the horses reveal his sensitive sides, in contrast to his faded glory in the macho world of cowboys. 

Amateur actors play versions of themselves. The person who plays Brady had the same injury and the bronco busting is real. This idiosyncratic Western won the Art Cinema Award in Cannes. 

Release in The Netherlands: April 19, 2018.
