Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is a historical comedy-drama directed and produced by Anthony Fabian, from a screenplay he co-wrote with Carroll Cartwright, Keith Thompson, and Olivia Hetreed. It is the third film adaptation of the 1958 novel Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris by Paul Gallico. This delightful film follows an older woman who brings her dream of going to Paris and wearing a Dior dress to fruition. I saw this movie a long time ago and really enjoyed it.

In 1957 London, Mrs. Ada Harris (Lesley Manville), a widowed cleaning lady, becomes obsessed with one client’s haute couture Dior dress; it inspires an ambition to buy her own Dior dress.

She stumbles into a showing of Dior’s 10th-anniversary collection and is befriended by André (Lucas Bravo), the Dior accountant, and Natasha (Alba Baptista)
