“Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris” in 2022

Lesley Manville is no stranger to movies with fabulous outfits. She's been in at least two films that have won Best Costume Design: Phantom Thread and Topsy-Turvy. Next year, she'll star in a film that's sure to be a front-runner for the award. She plays the titular role, a maid who becomes obsessed with a Dior dress and moves to Paris.

Produced in partnership with the House of Dior, the film co-stars Isabelle Huppert, Jason Isaacs and Rose Williams. Carroll Cartwright (What Maisie Knew), Olive Hetreed (Wuthering Heights) and Keith Thompson (The Sapphires) co-wrote the film with director Anthony Fabian, whose more known for his documentary work.

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris opens in theaters on March 4, 2022. It should serve as solid counterprogramming to The Batman.


About Kip Mooney

Kip Mooney
Like many film critics born during and after the 1980s, my hero is Roger Ebert. The man was already the best critic in the nation when he won the Pulitzer in 1975, but his indomitable spirit during and after his recent battle with cancer keeps me coming back to read not only his reviews but his insightful commentary on the everyday. But enough about a guy you know a lot about. I knew I was going to be a film critic—some would say a snob—in middle school, when I had to voraciously defend my position that The Royal Tenenbaums was only a million times better than Adam Sandler’s remake of Mr. Deeds. From then on, I would seek out Wes Anderson’s films and avoid Sandler’s like the plague. Still, I like to think of myself as a populist, and I’ll be just as likely to see the next superhero movie as the next Sundance sensation. The thing I most deplore in a movie is laziness. I’d much rather see movies with big ambitions try and fail than movies with no ambitions succeed at simply existing. I’m also a big advocate of fun-bad movies like The Room and most of Nicolas Cage’s work. In the past, I’ve written for The Dallas Morning News and the North Texas Daily, which I edited for a semester. I also contributed to Dallas-based Pegasus News, which in the circle of life, is now part of The Dallas Morning News, where I got my big break in 2007. Eventually, I’d love to write and talk about film full-time, but until that’s a viable career option, I work as an auditor for Wells Fargo. I hope to one day meet my hero, go to the Toronto International Film Festival, and compete on Jeopardy. Until then, I’m excited to share my love of film with you.
