Set in the glamour of 1950's post-war London, renowned dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis) and his sister Cyril (Lesley Manville) are at the center of British fashion, dressing royalty, movie stars, heiresses, socialites, debutants 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 movie, and his second collaboration with Daniel Day-Lewis.

Hospital People: The Complete Series 1 on DVD [read more]
Getting better all the time
Comedian Tom Binns stars in multiple roles in this sharply scripted BBC mockumentary following the lives of non-medical staff at a fictional NHS hospital trust - none of whom have any business haunting the corridors of a hospital...
Binns plays tragically inept, relentlessly upbeat hospital radio DJ Ivan Brackenbury ('the cheerful earful'), chaplain, devout Liverpudlian and misplaced comic Father Kenny Mercer, and porter and self-styled psychic healer Ian D. Montfort; a motley band of misfits working at the Brimlington Royal Infirmary and presided over by megalomaniac manager Susan Mitchell (also played by Binns).
Co-produced by Ash Atalla (The Office, Trollied) Hospital People includes guest turns from Russell Brand, Mark Williams, Alex Macqueen and Sally Phillips; this set features all six episodes.
Hospital People: The Complete Series 1 (15) is available on DVD on 30 October 2017, RRP £14.99, courtesy of Network Distributing.
Bertha DocHouse is proud to announce the highly-acclaimed documentary DOLORES will launch as part of Bertha DocHouse's DocHouse Firsts strand at the Curzon Bloomsbury from 1st December 2017.
History tells us Cesar Chavez transformed the U.S. labour movement by leading the first farm workers' union. But missing from this narrative in his equally influential co-founder, Dolores Huerta, who fought tirelessly alongside Chavez for racial and labour justice and became one of the most defiant feminists of the twentieth century.
Like so many powerful women advocates, Dolores and her sweeping reforms were - and still are - sidelined and diminished. Even as she empowered a generation of immigrants to stand up for their rights, her relentless work ethic was constantly under attack. False accusations from foes and friends alike, of child neglect and immoral behaviour - she married three times and raised 11 children - pushed Dolores out of the very union she helped create.
Peter Bratt's provocative and energizing documentary challenges an incomplete history. Through beautifully woven archival footage and interviews from contemporaries and from Dolores herself, now an octogenarian, the film sets the record straight on one of the most effect and undervalued civil and labour rights leaders in modern U.S. history.
