Colette (15) Film / Cinema


A period drama in which a young woman fights for recognition after her novels are published under her husband's name.

She is being courted by a debonair writer and publisher, the much older and more worldly Willy (a charismatic Dominic West). The couple marry and initially, Willy’s ambition to launch a literary brand struggles.
When Colette writes an autobiographical story about Claudine, a sexually adventurous teenager, the book becomes a sensation. As Willy takes full credit for the story, he becomes the toast of the town, all the while pressurising his wife to write more. Initially content to live in the shadows of her famous husband, Colette begins to feel stifled by their arrangement, both artistically and personally, until she realises she needs to navigate the world on her own, unconventional terms.
Keira Knightley is perfectly cast as Colette – the reserve that some critics have found in her previous performances works perfectly here. Her transformation from naïve schoolgirl to assertive artist is a joy to watch and the sparks which fly between her and Dominic West.
