(2018)

History is about to change.

Keira Knightley plays the titular French novelist in this biopic directed by Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Wash Westmoreland (Quinceañera).... More

"Colette arrives from the countryside as a young bride to Willy (West) — an older, notorious literary entrepreneur — and she is immediately swept into flamboyant, libertine society. At Willy’s prompt, she takes pen to paper and invents the loosely autobiographical Claudine novels, which take Paris by storm. The character Claudine becomes a veritable pop-culture icon, but Colette does not, since Willy takes authorial credit. To reclaim her literary voice, Colette must set out for new transgressive adventures, sans Willy." (Sundance Film Festival)Hide
