Beauty, creativity, genius: the Renaissance Florence of Lorenzo de' Medici was a powerhouse of art and culture. Among countless shops and government buildings, there was endless beauty coexisting with the dark side of the city, made up of power struggles, plots, intrigues and brutal violence.
Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for In Fabric at Dendy Canberra
In Fabric is a British horror comedy film, written and directed by Peter Strickland. It stars Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Hayley Squires, Leo Bill, and Gwendoline Christie.
Peter Strickland's reputation as a brilliantly idiosyncratic auteur is further enhanced by this giddy excursion into fashion, fantasy, consumerism and human frailty. In Fabric exudes luscious menace from the moment lonely middle-aged bank teller Sheila (Jean-Baptiste, Secrets & Lies) buys a fetching red frock from a particularly peculiar saleslady at fancy London clothes shop Dentley & Sopers. But Sheila isn't the first owner of this cursed garment, nor will she be the last. Soaked in the spirit of European arthouse thrillers of the '70s and '80s, In Fabric is a fashion-horror statement of rare and intoxicating distinction.

In the lead up to In Fabric's release Stephanie Bunbury interviews Peter Strickland for the Sydney Morning Herald
Strickland explains “You could argue it’s satirising consumerist culture, with a very soft C, but it’s also a celebration of the high street,” he says. “In your lunch break you will go to a shop to buy something to make yourself feel better. And there’s nothing wrong with that.”
