An enchanting new adaptation of Paul Gallico’s much-loved novel about a cleaning lady in 1950s London who falls in love with an haute couture dress by Christian Dior and decides to risk everything for the sake of her dreams. After Mrs. Harris works, starves and gambles to raise the funds, she embarks on an adventure to Paris which will change not only her own outlook on life, but the very future of the House of Dior.
“delightful fairy tale for grown-ups… goes beyond Mrs. Harris’ circumstances to champion the right of all invisible women to be seen and appreciated as individuals”
—David Rooney for The Hollywood Reporter
