Lesley Manville Wants a Dior Dress in ‘Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris’ Trailer
“A Dior dress is designed to astonish. How will you do that, Mrs. Harris?” Focus Features has unveiled the first official trailer for Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, a charming new film starring Lesley Manville. This is adapted from the upcoming book of the same name by Paul Gallico, and the feature arrives in theaters starting in July this summer. Playing not only in the US this July, but in most countries around the world! “Take a chance. Dare to dream.” A widowed cleaning lady in 1950s London falls madly in love with a couture Dior dress, and decides that she must have one of her own. Oscar-nominated British actress Lesley Manville stars as Mrs. Harris, with an exquisite cast featuring Rose Williams, Jason Isaacs, Anna Chancellor, Freddie Fox, Lucas Bravo, Alba Baptista, Isabelle Huppert and Lambert Wilson. Well this looks utterly delightful! A bit campy, yet still uplifting storytelling, and Manville always gives a great performance.
