The Outfit (2022). Movie Reviews

The Outfit is a 2022 thriller directed by Graham Moore. Starring Mark Rylance. With Zoey Deutch, Dylan O’Brien and Johnny Flynn.

Plot

Chicago, 1956. Former Savile Row tailor Leonard (Mark Rylance) has relocated to the Windy City after a personal tragedy. He is gifted with the infinite capacity to create bespoke suits with precision, patience and care. These beautiful suits soon catch the eye of the only customers who can afford them: a family of gangsters. Leonard in turn demonstrates a loyalty to this band of criminals, led by head of the family Roy Boyle, turning a blind eye to their private discussions on his shop floor and the mysterious packages they leave there for collection. However, the gang begins to take advantage of Leonard’s gentle, accommodating nature – and over the course of one night, after two killers knock on his door in need of a favour, Leonard and his assistant Mable (Zoey Deutch) find themselves embroiled deeper than they could ever have imagined.

Movie Reviews

“Despite Rylance’s effective work and some smart physical staging, the film is ultimately unable to overcome its ‘tell, don’t show — then tell again’ dialogue” Siddhant Adlakha: IndieWire 

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

“There’s a pile-up of climaxes that feel a little less impactful even as the stakes are raised higher, and it’s hard not to wish that they kept the storytelling a little simpler and thus more elegant.[It] still stands out” David Fear: Rolling Stone
