January Meeting

On Friday, January 28, 2023, members of the Catholic Women’s Club gathered in the Parish Center for An Afternoon at the Movies. To accompany the movie viewing there was a delicious variety of snacks, a favorite one being freshly popped popcorn from Roche Bros. along with an assortment of beverages.

 

Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris was the movie selection, a lighthearted comedy-drama, the third adaptation of the 1958 novel Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris by Paul Gallico. The film stars Lesley Manville who was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical. The film has also been nominated for the Academy Award for Best Costume Design.

 

In 1950’s London, the widowed Mrs. Harris, falls in love with a couture Christian Dior dress and decides that she needs to have one of her own. After working feverishly to save enough money for the trip to Paris and a Dior gown, she sets off on a journey of incredibly unexpected experiences that will change her life and, at the same time, change the direction of the House of Dior! This film intertwines comedy, sadness, common sense, aloofness, love intrigue, kindness, self awareness, and sweetness in a charming and sensitive story that should keep the viewer not only entertained but also grounded. The film was a great choice for a winter afternoon and was truly enjoyed by all!
