Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth Are the Perfect Antidote to Hollywood's Old-Man-Young-Girlfriend Problem

In a satisfying, ab-tastic reversal of the Maggie Gyllenhaal Conundrum, Liam Hemsworth, 25, has been cast opposite 39-year-old Kate Winslet in The Dressmaker, which is damn refreshing and should catapult Kate's love-interest age graph into a class of its own.

Playing Australian couturier Tilly Dunnage, Winslet returns home to care for her mother, scandalizing the townspeople who think she's a murderer (that's why she left, see?) and crafting life-changing gowns for mousy spinsters in the process. She also tries making a suit or something for shirtless, rugby-toned Liam Hemsworth, but they just end up making out and it isn't weird even though they're 15 years apart.

More please. Watch the trailer below.
