Vicky Krieps on “Phantom Thread” and Why She Considers It a Women’s Film

Krieps in “Phantom Thread”

Vicky Krieps has a long list of credits, but her new film, “Phantom Thread,” just might be the one to make her a household name. She plays the protégé and lover of a renowned London fashion designer (Daniel Day-Lewis) in Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest project. Before booking the role Krieps acted on stage and in primarily European films like “Hanna,” “Two Lives,” “Before the Winter Chill,” and “The Young Karl Marx.”

We recently spoke to Krieps about how she interprets her “Phantom Thread” character, what it’s like to be a breakout star, and the strength of modern women.

Phantom Thread” is currently playing in limited release. It opens nationwide January 19.

Film Review: ‘Phantom Thread’ is Both Beautiful and Muddled

Chicago – There is a certain beauty in human creation, and the fashion industry allows that we can be individual in the sense of our clothing choices. The perfection that those creators attend to is nicely defined in “Phantom Thread,” but as an exploration of their personal life, it is frustrating.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

This is the unique auteur mind of Paul Thomas Anderson (“The Master,” “Inherent Vice”) and the way he approaches his film topics is mind altering. It’s always fascinating to try and interpret his often anti-hero films, and they always fall into one category… The Films of Paul Thomas Anderson. “Phantom Thread” is an obsessive movie, about the machinations of a fictional designer of fashion (portrayed by Daniel Day-Lewis, in what he is saying is his final on-screen role) in post-war 1950s London. The centerpiece of his adventure is about a relationship with a woman who he cannot live without,

Vicky Krieps on ‘Phantom Thread,’ Her Future, Her Influences, and #MeToo

Vicky Krieps on ‘Phantom Thread,’ Her Future, Her Influences, and #MeToo
Luxembourger actress Vicky Krieps has been appearing in European films for the better part of a decade, but it’s safe to say that none brought her anywhere near the exposure of her role in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread.” To discuss her role as Alma, the country waitress who becomes the very complicated muse to Daniel Day-Lewis’ London dressmaker Reynolds Woodcock, Krieps has done round after round of press, so much so that she can refer to the email from a casting director that first offered her the part – in which she managed to miss the name “Paul Thomas Anderson,” thinking the role was for a student film – as “this famous email.” Here, she discusses how her perspective on the film has already changed, her plans for the future, her take on #MeToo, and a chance meeting with one of her heroes.

Enjoy the Silence of Sally Hawkins, ‘The Shape of Water’s’ Princess Without Voice

Enjoy the Silence of Sally Hawkins, ‘The Shape of Water’s’ Princess Without Voice
“We didn’t need dialogue. We had faces!”

That line from “Sunset Boulevard” is often quoted even now, some 70 years after it was first released, but it’s rarely been more apropos than when considering Sally Hawkins’ performance in “The Shape of Water.” She plays a mute janitor in Guillermo del Toro’s fantastical romance, and though her co-stars recite some lyrical dialogue (co-written by del Toro and Vanessa Taylor), Hawkins doesn’t — nor does she need to. As the film’s “princess without voice,” she emotes, gestures, and dances her way to the most moving performance of 2017.

Like most actors and actresses whose success seems to have come overnight, Hawkins’ didn’t. She’s likely to be nominated for her second Oscar later this month — her first, for her work opposite Cate Blanchett in “Blue Jasmine,” was long overdue — but the 41-year-old has been paying her dues for more than two decades.

Phantom Thread – Review

Vicky Krieps stars as “Alma” and Daniel Day-Lewis stars as “Reynolds Woodcock” in writer/director Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread, a Focus Features release. Photo credit : Laurie Sparham / Focus Features

Phantom Thread is a beautiful, seductive drama set in the rarefied world of high fashion in 1950s Britain. Director Paul Thomas Anderson re-teams with Daniel Day-Lewis, his star from 2007’s There Will Be Blood, for a absorbing tale filled with mystery, danger and romance made more fascinating by Daniel Day-Lewis’ electrifying performance.

Reynolds Woodcock (Daniel Day-Lewis), a brilliant, successful but eccentric clothing designer who heads his own fashion house in 1955 London, where his clients include royalty, movie stars, heiresses, grand dames and socialites. Woodcock is gifted but he is also exacting, temperamental and ego-eccentric. Gifted and elegant, Reynolds can be charming or eccentric by turns. His sister and business partner Cyril (the wonderful Leslie Manville) takes care of

“The Shape of Water” wins big at the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards

Last night, the critics portion of the precursor season came to a head with the 23rd annual Critics’ Choice Awards. Chosen by the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the winners here get a nice little boost as Academy Award voting is currently wrapping up. Remember, critics aren’t members of the Academy, so there’s limited impact to be found for Oscar, but televised victories are never a bad thing. Wins here are fuel for nominations, and little more. Still, forward momentum is useful and appreciated, to say the least. For a few movies, it was a great evening, with one Guillermo del Toro helmed picture doing particularly well. The Bfca went wild (comparatively) for The Shape of Water, which led the field with four wins, to go along with entering the night as the overall nominations leader. Other multi winners were Coco, Darkest Hour, Get Out, I, Tonya, and Three Billboards Outside Ebbing,

8 Breakout Performers From the Fall of 2017

Earlier last year, Variety weighed in with breakout performances from summer movies. With 2017 wrapped up, it felt like time to revisit some more actors who were previously unknown before stellar turns in the latter part of the year. This list doesn’t include actors profiled in our “Actors to Watch” honors like “Downsizing” standout Hong Chau. And my colleague Kris Tapley already spoke of the fantastic Bria Vinaite in “The Florida Project” in his recent column on performances that shouldn’t be overlooked. So here are some of the other actors who caught our eye in the remainder of 2017.

Beanie Feldstein, “Lady Bird”

What would Saoirse Ronan’s eponymous Lady Bird be without her best friend, Julie? Greta Gerwig assembled an impressive group of up-and-comers for her solo directing debut, like Lucas Hedges and Timothée Chalamet. But Feldstein was a fresh discovery, a new face with only a handful of film credits (including “Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) to her

Review: Darkest Hour (2018)

As awards season gets underway it is that time of year where Drama reigns, historical figures are brought to big screens and Meryl Streep gets prepared to embarrassingly look away when the host makes a crack or two about her being nominated yearly because she is so brilliant. It seems that with every awards season you get a lot of fresh and emerging talents trying to break into the Hollywood hierarchy but every so often you get some long overdue recognition of a great (see Michael Keaton for Birdman). Throughout history many superb actors never received big awards – especially Oscars – and some were not even nominated…until 2012 this was the case for the excellent Gary Oldman. Known for his range and commitment, Oldman has missed out on Oscar acknowledgement for years until being nominated for Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. Little gold awards, of course, ultimately means nothing next to the power of a fantastic performance,
