movie – Mrs Harris goes to Paris
All films with Isabelle Huppert (piano Please call your teacher/my agent) It draws me like a magnet. Pair her with the wonderful Lesley Manville.Both are currently starring in Mrs. Harris went to Paris, And I am hooked before reading a single review. Mrs. Harris (Manville) is a charlady from London in her fifties who has fallen in love with her client Dior’s dress and longs to own it.She is saving money for her famous trip to Paris. Maison of Dior Mme Colbert (Huppert) is at the helm. Both women know how to show their frosty side, so it doesn’t take much imagination to imagine the ensuing scene of French haute tulle! I can vouch for its subdued “impostor syndrome” feeling, but this promises a triumphantly hilarious ending to a Cinderella story. When

TV – Happy Valley
BAFTA award-winning series, happy valley, can’t wait to be back for its third and final series!!! It’s worth the exclamation point.

tv set – good fight
we came late good fight Fandom, missed the prequel series (Good Wife), But after watching just one episode, we were hooked. It’s definitely not too late to join this his sixth and final series. The brilliant duo of Diane Lockhart (Kristin Baranski) and Liz Reddick (Audra McDonald) are the best lawyers in a predominantly black city’s law firm. The series begins with Diane suffering from extreme déjà vu and lamenting the setbacks in women’s choice decades ago, to Trump running for president (again) and the cold war restarting. It’s the kind of social reflection the show does so brilliantly that it draws a direct line from the viewer to the fiction. Office politics, legal intrigue, and a great cast join in for a thrilling and entertaining rollercoaster ride.
