Phantom Thread is a 2017 American historical drama film written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, set in London's couture world in the 1950s. It stars Daniel Day-Lewis as a dressmaker who falls in love with a much younger waitress, played by Vicky Krieps; the couple's relationship vacillates between affectionate and distant until they finally learn to live with one another's differences. It is reportedly Day-Lewis's final film role.
The film is Anderson's first shot outside the United States, with principal photography beginning in January 2017 in Lythe, England. It is his second collaboration with Day-Lewis, following There Will Be Blood (2007), and his fourth with composer Jonny Greenwood.
The film premiered in New York City on December 11, 2017, and was released in the United States on December 25, 2017. Phantom Thread received critical acclaim, with praise for Day-Lewis' performance, Anderson's screenplay and direction, the musical score and production values, and it was chosen by the National Board of Review as one of the top ten films of 2017. At the 90th Academy Awards, the film earned six nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor for Day-Lewis, and Supporting Actress for Manville. It also received two Golden Globe nominations: Best Actor – Drama (Day-Lewis) and Best Original Score, as well as four at the 71st British Academy Film Awards, including Best Actor in a Leading Role for Day-Lewis, Best Actress in a Supporting Role for Manville, and Best Film Music for Greenwood.
