Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris

1 hour 55 minutes

In post-World War II London, Ada Harris (Oscar nominee Lesley Manville) earns a living cleaning houses. She’s led a lonely life since her beloved husband Eddie went missing in action, but she’s not the type to brood over any misfortune or to complain about her circumstances. But when the ever-pragmatic Ada spies an unimaginably lovely Christian Dior gown hanging in the master bedroom of a wealthy client, she’s surprised to feel an overwhelming pang of desire. Owning something so ethereal, so beautiful, a true work of art— why, that could really change things for a person, she instinctively feels. After taking on extra jobs and saving as much as she can—even trying her luck at the race track—Ada finally can afford to pay for a Dior dress. She makes her way to Paris to visit the House of Dior to turn her dream into reality. Yet when she arrives, Ada is met with a series of surprising setbacks, not least of which is Dior’s intimidating Madame Colbert (Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert), who bristles at the very notion of a common charlady wearing haute couture. Adapting author Paul Gallico’s 1958 novel Mrs. ’Arris Goes to Paris, for the screen, writer/director Anthony Fabian creates a winning modern-day fairytale in MRS. HARRIS GOES TO PARIS.
