Keira Knightley plays Colette in the fascinating story of the woman behind the scandalous Claudine and Gigi novels that dazzled French society in 1920s Paris.

The film follows Colette’s rise from country girl to darling of the Parisian demi-monde with her husband Willy Gauthier-Villars (Dominic West). An author in his own right, Willy mentors Colette and later betrays her, as her stories gain them fame and notoriety.

COLETTE is a compelling insight into the life of a brilliant young woman as she forges her own independence.
