Colette

Westmoreland, Wash
Genre: 
After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as “Willy” (Dominic West), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette's fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression. Nominated for Best Screenplay at the Film Independent Spirit Awards. Official Selection at the Sundance Film Festival. "Knightley...not only brings to life a woman discovering new desires and needs and finding the strength to act on them, but conveys the inner toil of the writer's creative process." - Peter Keough, The Boston Globe
