Lesley Manville and Daniel Day-Lewis in Paul Thomas Anderson's Phantom Thread

For a director so devoted to his own material and vision, Paul Thomas Anderson has suffused his latest film with delicate notes of Hitchcock that recall the classic “Rebecca.” Prior to its release, very little was known about “Phantom Thread,” save for the fact its star, Daniel Day Lewis, has declared this to be his last movie. Based on his stellar performance in this, I hope he will change his mind.
