Judy Davis to play Kate Winslet's mother in "The Dressmaker"

Thursday, August 15, 2013 4:59 PM | Anonymous

Australian actress Judy Davis is set to play Kate Winslet's mother in "The Dressmaker". 

Set in 1950s outback Australia, Jocelyn Moorhouse will direct a screenplay she adapted from a novel by Rosalie Ham. 

Winslet will play Tilly Dunnage, a woman who returns to the small country town she fled from as a child, after being accused of murder. 

No stranger to Australia, Winslet starred in Jane Campion's 1999 Dramedy "Holy Smoke," which filmed in locations across New South Wales and South Australia.

According to producer Sue Maslin, filming is expected to take place in Victoria next year.

Congrats, Judy!
