Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread is Daniel Day-Lewis’s onscreen swan song, the final film of an illustrious career.

In fact, he is the only male actor ever to win the Academy Award for Best Actor three times! In this video, we explore the gravitas and passion of a performer who truly throws himself into a role, body, mind, heart, and soul of the characters he plays. He will be missed.
