Born in rural France in 1873, Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) moves to Paris with her new husband, where her Claudine novels – semi-autobiographical and risqué, drawing on her own affairs with women – sell like hot cakes. Her husband Willy, however – a publisher at the heart of the city’s literary scene – puts his own name on the books. Dominic West produces ‘undoubtedly the best film performance he’s ever given’ as the manipulative Willy, while Knightley is on ‘top form: luminous, clever, sexy and sympathetic’ – The Guardian. Following Colette as she reclaims her personal and literary freedom, Still Alice director Wash Westmoreland’s film is ‘a transgressive, funny biopic about female excellence’ – Elle.
Followed by a Q&A with producers Elizabeth Karlsen & Stephen Woolley.
