The Outfit (2022). movie reviews

The clothe is a 2022 thriller film directed by Graham Moore. Featuring Marc Rylance. With Zoey Deutsch, Dylan O’Brien and Johnny Flynn.


Chicago, 1956. Former Savile Row tailor Leonard (Mark Rylance) has moved to Windy City after a personal tragedy. He is gifted with the infinite ability to create bespoke costumes with precision, patience and care. It doesn’t take long for these beautiful costumes to attract the attention of the only customers who can afford them: a family of gangsters. Leonard in turn demonstrates loyalty to this gang of criminals, led by family boss Roy Boyle, turning a blind eye to their private discussions in his workshop and the mysterious packages they leave there for collection. However, the gang begins to take advantage of Leonard’s gentle and easygoing nature – and over the course of one night, after two killers knock on his door in need of a favor, Leonard and his assistant Mable (Zoey Deutch) find themselves entwined more deeply than they could have ever imagined.

movie reviews

“Despite Rylance’s effective work and clever physical direction, the film is ultimately unable to overcome its ‘tell, don’t show – then tell’ dialogue” Siddhant Adlakha: IndieWire

“[It] plays like the first draft of a play rather than the thriller it is intended to be (…) The overall effect of ‘The Outfit’ is something performed, rather than experienced” Robert Abele : The Wrap

“There’s an accumulation of climaxes that feel a little less impactful even as the stakes are higher, and it’s hard not to wish they had kept the storytelling a little simpler and therefore more elegant.[It] always stands out” David Fear: Rolling Stone
