This sumptuously dressed biopic of the early years of Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel faithfully charts the rising hemlines and torn bustiers of a passionate woman repressed by society, with emotion-driven montages of dressmaking as Coco uses sewing machine and scissors to direct her restless energies into clothing. There's nothing experimental or innovative here, but it provides undeniably classy entertainment.
