After wowing audiences at the opening of the recent British Film Festival, the thoroughly entertaining biopic Colette starring a radiantly feisty Keira Knightley arrives on local screens this month.
After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as “Willy” (Dominic West), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendour of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette’s fight over creative ownership defies gender roles and drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionising literature, fashion and sexual expression. M from Dec 20.
“A radiant, riveting Keira Knightley” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
“Exhilarating, inspiring and gorgeous” – Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
“Whip-smart and crackling” – Emily Yoshida, Vulture
