Paul Thomas Anderson’s Phantom Thread is Daniel Day-Lewis’s onscreen swan song, the final film of an illustrious career. Over the years, Day-Lewis has proven one of the most discerning leading men in Hollywood, having starred in only six feature films since 1998. Yet his performances in There Will Be Blood, Lincoln, and The Last of the Mohicans, to name a few, are some of the most acclaimed and memorable of recent memory. 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.
