Arriving in the dead of night at the remote wheat-belt town of Dungatar, Tilly Dunnage (Kate Winslet) stages a strange and defiant homecoming in The Dressmaker (Jocelyn Moorhouse, Australia, 2015).

FarratĀ (Hugo Weaving), the local policeman, recognises her dress before he recognises her: 'Myrtle Dunnage, you grew up' he says breathlessly.

The portraits capture the atmosphere of this gothic mystery filmed in a purpose-built, one-street town in the You Yangs, in Victoria.

Stills photographer Ben King grabbed the opportunity to do a special photoshoot with the leading actors in the beautiful evening light while the cast and crew were waiting for the sun to set for night filming.
