Every month, Fullerton Public Library hosts its own art-house night with a different contemporary flick for local cinephiles.

This month, it’s running the latest Paul Thomas Anderson/Daniel Day-Lewis vehicle, Phantom Thread.

The Oscar-nominated , critically lauded film follows Reynolds Woodcock, a mercurial-albeit-accomplished couture designer living in 1950s London who meets his match in a young, strong-willed, working-class woman who offsets the finely tuned balance of his life.

The movie is notable for being Lewis’ final cinematic role before he set off on his well-deserved retirement (we’ll see), as well as for a gorgeous parade of gowns designed by Mark Bridges.

Arguably the best line: “Kiss me, my girl, before I’m sick.”

Phantom Thread at Fullerton Public Library, 353 W. Commonwealth Ave., Fullerton, (714) 738-6833; www.fullertonlibrary.org. Wed., 6 p.m. Free.
