In this mesmerising period drama from Leeds-born director Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice), Keira Knightley shines as French novelist Gabrielle Colette in the story of her creative awakening in turn-of-the-century Paris, a place as dynamic and modern as she was. After her husband convinces her to ghost-write for him, Colette creates the loosely autobiographical Claudine novels which take Paris by storm. Caught in her husband’s shadow, Colette fights for creative ownership. ‘Wash Westmoreland’s Colette is exhilarating, funny, inspiring and (remember: corsets!) gorgeous.’ (The Guardian)

‘The original draw was Colette herself. She’s an incredibly interesting character, a brilliant writer, who made such extraordinary decisions in her own life. She did incredibly courageous things, she was a pioneer, writing about women’s sexual experiences and writing about exploring issues with her own sexuality.’ Wash Westmoreland, Director.
