In 1950’s post-war London, dressmaker, Reynolds Woodcock, and his sister work at making royalty, movie stars and socialites look truly glamorous by creating the most beautiful dresses known to the fashion world. A confirmed bachelor, Woodcock is unmoved by all of the beautiful women he comes in contact with through his work, until he meets Alma, with whom the attraction is immediate, which, in turn disrupts his perfectly sculpted life in the next Morning Movie Presentation, slated to be held at the Wheatfield Library on Thursday, May 24 at 10 am.
