Focus Features revealed today a sneak peek into their upcoming Summer movie Mrs Harris Goes to Paris.

Mrs Harris Goes to Paris is a breathtaking tale about how it’s never too late to follow your heart and live your life to the fullest. And if this trailer is any indication, it’s sure to be an emotional and heartwarming summer film.
