Jordan A (kr) wrote: With a powerful performance by Jeff Bridges, this country music drama has a lot of character. Following the story of a washed up country music star, we see him transform from a dead beat drunk into a wise and caring man. Good film with good performances. 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Adam N (gb) wrote: Roger Ebert says this movie is a treasure, and I couldn't agree more. When a low budget film like this can come off so effortlessly and perfectly, it leaves one wondering what the Hollywood execs are thinking when they churn out the mindless tripe. It's interesting that today it seems so brave and cutting edge to develop a story about a couple of characters where very little action takes place, but guess what: our lives are stories about a couple of characters where very little action takes place.

Lisa D (fr) wrote: This movie was entertaining up until the last 20 minutes. I know it was based on a book, but I just couldn't make sense of it afterwards. I was left feeling numb and kind of pissed-off. I would have given this movie 5 stars if it wasn't for that twisted ef-u to the audience kind of ending. "The Dressmaker" is categorized as a Comedy/Drama which seems as confusing as the feelings I experienced after watching the film. Kate Winslet and the rest of the cast were amazing. The movie was visually captivating, but it was that crappy ending that ruined it form me.
