Lesley Manville stars as a hardworking cleaning lady in 1950s London who embarks on an unlikely adventure to Paris in Ol Parker’s delightful adaptation of Paul Gallico’s 1958 novel Flowers for Mrs Harris.
Mrs Harris (Manville) doggedly goes from house to house, quietly tidying up after lives far more exciting and glamorous than hers. But when she sees an exquisite Dior dress in one of her regular client’s bedrooms, she sets her heart on travelling to Paris to get one herself. After she works, starves and gambles to raise the money, she sets off on a trip which will change not only her outlook on life, but the very future of the House of Dior. Co-starring Isabelle Huppert (as Dior’s snippy director), Lambert Wilson and Jason Isaacs, Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is a charming, uplifting and immersive flight of fancy about a woman finding new possibilities in mid-life, brilliantly led by Manville.
