Colette

"Colette" ranks as one of the great roles for which Keira Knightley will be remembered." - Variety

Keira Knightley stars as a 19th-century French writer forced to live in the shadow of her Svengali-like husband in director Wash Westmoreland's empowering biopic.

"As much as we romanticize Belle Époque Paris, the City of Light was not so enlightened when it came to women’s rights at the turn of the 20th century. Their fortunes nearly always depended on marriage, or else being 'kept' by wealthy men; they were forbidden from wearing pants and could be arrested for being seen in public dressed in men’s clothes; and as pseudonymous literary sensation 'George Sand' demonstrated, they were discouraged from writing and publishing, under their own names at least.

"And yet, that was the Paris into which Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette was whisked upon marrying Henry Gauthier-Villars, AKA 'Willy,' a popular author and critic who pushed her to write, then took credit for her wildly successful Claudine stories. Less a stuffy literary biopic than an ever-relevant female-empowerment saga, Colette ranks as one of the great roles for which Keira Knightley will be remembered. Colette succeeds in tying her story to the zeitgeist, while delving deeper into the love affairs she pursued with other women." - Variety
