A 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 gamble everything for the sake of this folly.
Ada Harris, a London charwoman in the 1950's, sees a Dior dress and decides that she's going to own one. First, she scrimps and saves her money, but when she has enough, and takes a trip to Paris, she learns that buying an original couture creation is a little harder than simply plunking down cash. Along the way to her goal, she manages to befriend a count, unite young lovers, and dodge customs.Written by
Yes, the movie is sweetly unbelievable. The soundtrack is pleasant, the scenery is beautiful and the story line predictable. For some unknown reason, I can't get this movie out of my mind! Maybe because I watch it on video regularly...hahahahaha I'd never heard of Bluteau before this...WOW! what a performance! I've also watched Black Robe several times simply because he was in it. I love the dichotomy between his strength and vulnerability. This movie ends and I feel GOOD about people; you can't say that about many movies these days. I HIGHLY recommend this movie!
