OUR MOVIE REVIEW:

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is an eloquent delight that allows the average viewer to tour the streets of Paris alongside Mrs. Harris and root for her ultimate dream to come true. It’s a charming tale that will draw its ideal demographic out in droves. With a dynamic production design that creates a wonderful contrast between the real city of Paris covered in trash and the dream-like dress designs by Dior.

 

Lesley Manville guides us through the life of the kindhearted Mrs. Harris and makes her incredibly relatable journey almost personal. The story may provide little wiggle room for surprise as any loyal Hallmark Channel enthusiast may come to a conclusion on where and when the story may jump from beat to beat. It’s in the delivery and the performances that bring comfort to the predictability. The supporting characters, beyond the woman in charge of Dior (below Dior himself), are all particularly simple and easy to enjoy their company, with only the one key villain in the pathway of Mrs. Harris’ dream.

 

From the hard work we watch our lead push herself through in order to achieve her biggest dream, to the ups and downs of her actual time in Paris, it’ll warm your heart, break it, and heal it in time to leave you smiling for what lies ahead for Mrs. Harris.
