(2022) (Lesley Manville, Isabelle Huppert) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: A widowed, 1950s era cleaning lady travels from London to Paris to buy a Christian Dior dress.
It's the 1950s and Ada Harris (LESLEY MANVILLE) is a widowed cleaning lady who services several clients in London, much like her good friend Vi Butterfield (ELLEN THOMAS). While dog track employee Archie (JASON ISAACS) is quite sweet on her, Ada's true love is fashion, and when she discovers that one of her rich clients owns a Christian Dior dress, Ada decides she must have one for herself.
So, she saves up her money and with some added luck, she has enough and sets off for Paris. But when she gets to the Dior headquarters, gatekeeper Claudine Colbert (ISABELLE HUPPERT) won't allow her in for a fashion show and sale. That prompts wealthy widower Marquis de Chassagne (LAMBERT WILSON) to escort her in as his guest, and despite Claudine's objections, company money man André Fauvel (LUCAS BRAVO) -- who secretly longs for model Natasha (ALBA BAPTISTA) -- assures her that she'll get a dress.
The only issue is that it will take a week, thus necessitating the help of strangers to accommodate her as she waits. During which they have an impact on her, as she does on both them and their fashion house.
