After moving to Paris, author Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) 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.
Set at the dawn of the modern age, Colette is the story of a woman who has been denied her voice, and who goes to extraordinary lengths to find it. More than a century after the publication of her first novel, Colette is still one of the best-selling French authors.
“Keira Knightley shines in gritty, glamorous biopic” – Mark Kermode ★★★★
