With The Outfit, Graham Moore, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of The Imitation Game, dips his toe in his directorial debut (also written by him and co-writer Johnathan McClain) with a film wildly ambitious in its modesty. It's an impressive feat in a slew of CGI-ridden recent films that are so, so busy yet ultimately empty and tedious. The Outfit all takes place within the confines of a bespoke store in wintry Chicago 1956--its elegance and craft of the highest order of menswear (neatly folded silk and shears clipping through fabric)--and its owner, Leonard (Mark Rylance), takes his trade and artistry extremely seriously. Mable (Zoey Deutch) is his front of store clerk and assistant who has dreamy aspirations of leaving Chicago--for international cities captured in her collection of snow globes. Amidst this unassuming team, the local mob periodically comes in to drop off mysterious envelopes, to which Leonard has been directed to turn a blind eye. Soon, his unostentatious existence gets intertwined into the bloody violence of the mob which leads to a long, tense night.
