NZ Herald 4/5 Stars "A simple story but with wonderfully complex characters that you can really sink your teeth into, and thankfully screenwriter Richard Glatzer (Still Alice) takes plenty of time to explore them. The two leads offer vibrant performances that bristle with a pin-sharp wit as they boil in their volatile chemistry."
Keira Knightley plays the titular French novelist in this biopic directed by Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner Wash Westmoreland. Colette tells the fascinating story of the woman behind the scandalous Claudine novels (and later Gigi) that dazzled French society in the first half of the 20th Century.
The film depicts her rise from country girl to darling of the Parisian demi-monde with her husband Henry â€˜Willyâ€™ Gauthier-Villars. A critic and author in his own right, he mentors and later betrays her, as her stories gain them fame and notoriety. A compelling insight into this passionate young womanâ€™s journey to create independence, Colette is from the producers of Carol and Still Alice.
