Keira Knightley (Atonement, Anna Karenina) gives a career-best performance in Wash Westmoreland’s (Still Alice) gorgeous, witty, exhilarating biopic of the pioneering French novelist. In Belle Époque France, Colette’s marriage to Henry (Dominic West) thrusts her from the country to the Paris demi-monde. Her first novels are published under her Svengali-like husband’s name; but her eventual fight for creative ownership drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionising women’s roles in literature as well as sexual expression. Whip-smart, precocious and unapologetic, Colette is recast as a uniquely talented feminist trailblazer, fighting for the ownership of her voice in a male-dominated world.
