A delightful and provocative biopic, Colette stars Keira Knightley as the celebrated French writer and gay icon, Gabrielle Colette. Dominic West plays her first husband, Willy, who introduces her to Paris Society. When money becomes scarce, he pressures her to write a novel, “Claudine”, and publishes it under his name. The success of the book results in a series of novels and inspires Gaby to fight for creative ownership. Knightley shines in this story of liberation, sexual adventure, and claiming women’s power.
