Colette (15)

January 18th - January 24th

 

Colette is pushed by her husband to write novels under his name. When the book series becomes a phenomenal success, she decides to fight to make her talents known and challenges gender norms along the way. A fascinating biopic starring Keira Knightley and Dominic West.

A young woman named Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) marries a charming literary entrepreneur named Willy (Dominic West), packing up her life in rural France and moving to Paris to be with him.

When Willy reveals his books are no longer flying off the shelves like they used to, he persuades Colette to write novels under his name to try and increase sales. She pens a phenomenally successful book series about a country girl called Claudine. The much-loved couple quickly become the talk of the town and Willy receives constant praise for work that isn’t actually his.

Over time, lack of recognition starts to grate on Collette and she decides to fight for creative ownership, challenging gender norms and putting her relationship with her husband to the test. She must desperately fight to overcome the societal constraints of the early 20th century in order to get her voice heard.

Colette is a fascinating drama based on a true story from acclaimed director Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice) and written by Wash Westmoreland, Richard Glatzer, and Rebecca Lenkiewicz.  The film stars Keira Knightley (Atonement), Dominic West (The Wire), and Eleanor Tomlinson (The Illusionist).
