Classic Australian movie feel, but I actually quite enjoyed it. This movie is surprisingly dark and a little weird.
I read the book first, which might have made the movie slightly better for me.
My advise is to NOT watch the trailer. It is hands down the worst trailer I have ever seen. It tries to turn it into a light hearted love movie, which it is clearly not.
Also it's not a chick flick, even though it's called the Dressmaker.
Anyways, watch it you're bored. I liked it!
