David Stratton Recommends

Keira Knightley stars as the eponymous French novelist, whose provocative debut — falsely credited to her husband — becomes the toast of Paris, triggering a battle for identity, equality, and self-determination at the dawn of the feminist age.

Colette (played with sumptuous feistiness by Knightley, Atonement) arrives from the countryside as a young bride to Henry Gauthier-Villars, known as Willy (Dominic West, The Affair) —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 adventures, sans Willy.

One of France’s most important and ground-breaking twentieth-century writers, Colette’s dozens of volumes of provocative fiction, memoirs and journalism jubilantly bucked the societal constraints that were placed on women. Writer/director Wash Westmoreland’s (Still Alice) mesmerising film tells the story of this iridescent artist’s creative awakening in turn-of-the-century Paris—a place as dynamic and modern as she was.

Colette ranks as one of the great roles for which Keira Knightley will be remembered.
Variety
A radiant, riveting Keira Knightley meets every challenge the title role of French novelist Colette throws at her and turns this tale of a pioneering feminist into an exhilarating kick.
