The Outfit

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.
Graham Moore’s debut feature as a director is a taut and twisted huis clos anchored by a brilliant Mark Rylance as a craftsman who knows the meaning behind each snip of his scissors and just might have a few tricks up his sleeve ...
