Cast. Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Fiona Shaw.
Knightley gives a career-best performance in this exhilarating, entertaining and timely film about the life of ground-breaking French novelist Colette. In Belle Époque France, Colette’s marriage to Henry ‘Willy’ Gauthier-Villars thrusts her into the raucous creative demi-monde of Paris. Swiftly developing her literary talents, her first novels are published under her Svengali-like husband’s name and he basks in their glory. Their complex marriage, and Colette’s relationships with women are brilliantly represented. Whip-smart, precocious and unapologetic, Colette is shining a light for future generations of female artists. The film premiered at Sundance 2018 to rave reviews.
