Must Watch Movie: Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris

In post-World War II London, Ada Harris (Academy Award® nominee Lesley Manville) earns a living cleaning houses. She’s led a lonely life since her beloved husband Eddie went missing in action, but she’s not the type to brood over any misfortune or to complain about her circumstances. Still, when the ever-pragmatic Ada spies an unimaginably lovely Christian Dior gown hanging in the master bedroom of a wealthy client, she’s surprised to feel an overwhelming pang of desire. Owning something so ethereal, so beautiful, a true work of art—why, that could really change things for a person.


After taking on extra jobs and saving as much as she can—even trying her luck at the race track—Ada finally can afford to pay for a Dior dress. She bids farewell to close friends Vi (Ellen Thomas) and Archie (Jason Isaacs) and makes her way to Paris to visit the prestigious House of Dior and turn her dreams into reality. Yet when she arrives, Ada is met with a series of surprising setbacks, not least of which is Dior’s intimidating Madame Colbert (Academy Award® nominee Isabelle Huppert), who bristles at the very notion of a common charlady wearing haute couture.


Still, whatever obstacles are thrown her way, Ada refuses to leave Paris without her dress.


Adapting author Paul Gallico’s 1958 novel Mrs. ’Arris Goes to Paris for the screen, writer-director Anthony Fabian creates a winning, modern-day fairytale about pursuing your dreams, the power of friendship and the importance of remaining true to who you are.


Jason Goliath’s One-Man Comedy Show DALA WHAT YOU MUST, IT IS WHAT IT IS

DALA WHAT YOU MUST, IT IS WHAT IT IS, is inspired by the most important word Jason grasped during lockdown; ‘acceptance’ and will include unfiltered, never-before-heard anecdotes about his life, his journey, uncomfortable truths and how he learnt to “Dala” (do) what he had to, to persevere. Take this show as an opportunity to get out of the house, rekindle with old friends or take a break from the kids. But more importantly, come and share what you have been going through and see that you are not alone…. all this, while laughing! There is no better therapy.

The self-confessed liberal guy at the braai, the retro jersey wearing comedian is having to watch his words, as much as the petrol price. And it’s not like Schalk is against change! But in this ever-changing world and society, he is just trying to keep up.
