We kinda think all anyone has to do to sell Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is utter the phrase “Lesley Manville as a sweet London charwoman and Isabelle Huppert as a stone cold French fashion bitch.” But maybe that’s just us. Suffice it to say…
This is checking off all of our boxes. It’s perhaps not surprising that a film centered around the House of Dior at the height of its powers is so pretty to look at:
In fact, we don’t feel like we need to say anything else here. This looks ridiculously charming and also incredibly fabulous, with two absolutely world class character actresses at the center of it. What else do you need to know?
Story: MRS. HARRIS GOES TO PARIS is the enchanting tale of a seemingly ordinary British housekeeper whose dream to own a couture Christian Dior gown takes her on an extraordinary adventure to Paris.
