COLETTE

Rating: M
Length: 112 mins
Cast: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Eleanor Tomlinson

After moving to Paris, author Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette agrees to ghostwrite a semi-autobiographical novel for her husband. Its success soon inspires her to fight for creative ownership and overcome the societal constraints of the early 20th century.

“Exhilarating, funny, inspiring and (remember: corsets!) gorgeous, too.” THE GUARDIAN

“Although director Wash Westmoreland tackles several serious subjects — sexual liberation, the repression of women’s voices, the power of art to change society — the movie has such a playful spirit that the talking points go down smoothly.” SCREEN INTERNATIONAL.

“Less stuffy literary biopic than ever-relevant female-empowerment saga, Colette ranks as one of the great roles for which Keira Knightley will be remembered.” VARIETY.

If only more period pieces these days were as finely tuned and accessibly pleasurable…” THE PLAYLIST.
