"Mrs. Harris Goes To Paris" tells a humorously heartwarming tale about a London housecleaner, Ada Harris (Lesley Manville) who thinks her lonely life might turn around if she can become the owner of a Christian Dior gown. Saying goodbye to her friends won't be easy, and neither will be winning over elite people in Paris from Madame Colbert (Isabell Huppert) to idealistic accountant André (Lucas Bravo). But Ada's irrepressible charm just might end up saving the whole House of Dior in this uplifting story of how an ordinary woman becomes an extraordinary inspiration by daring to follow her dreams. (Gary Reber)

The DTS=HD Master Digital 5.1-channel soundtrack is dialogue focused with wonderful spatial integration. Atmospherics are totally realistic and enhance the the wonderful ambiance of every scene. Sound effects also enhance the realistic sonics. Deep bass is occasional and dynamic. Surround envelopment at times encompasses the soundfield. The orchestral score is wonderful and nicely complementary. But the real fun is the dialogue with its commoner sensibilities. This is a terrific holosonic® soundtrack. (Gary Reber)
