Mrs Harris Goes To Paris
Co-written, co-produced and directed by Anthony Fabian, this light and deeply enjoyable adaptation is led by an exceptional performance from Brighton-born Lesley Manville. Co-produced by the UK’s Moonriver, and with French icon Isabelle Huppert delivering a charismatic performance as the brusque director of Dior, this film is pure breezy fun and escapism.
Mrs Harris (Lesley Manville), a widowed and hard-working cleaning lady in 1950’s London, becomes deeply enamoured with the idea of owning her own Dior dress. After trying to raise funds through any means possible, she journeys to Paris in a bid to make her dream a reality.
