Phantom Thread stars Daniel Day-Lewis as a prickly but bright designer Reynolds Woodcock. He even shouts at his muse for eating toast. Reynolds is not worried about keeping the times.
And when he finds out from his sister Cyril (Lesly Manville) that a big client jumped into another fashion house, he pretends to be confused.
“All I’ve done is dress her beautifully,” he rants. To which Cyril responds, “I don’t think that matters to some people. I think they want what is fashionable and chic.”
Reynolds breaks down, hearing this, saying, “Chic! Whoever invented that ought to be spanked in public. I don’t even know what that word means! What is that word? Fucking chic! They should be hung, drawn, and quartered. Fucking chic.”
