Harris started 2020 on a high note with an Oscar nomination for best picture as one of the producers of Sam Mendes feature “1917,” an experience made bittersweet as she looks beyond the pandemic, wondering when a made-for-the-big-screen project like the World War I epic would again be able to play in packed theaters.

Harris partners in Neal Street Productions with Mendes (a friend since their teens) and Caro Newling.
