Keira Knightley gives a career-best performance in this exhilarating biopic of ground-breaking French novelist Colette. Plunged from the country into the Paris demi-monde, Colettes first novelsare published under her Svengali-like husbands name, and he basks in the misappropriated glory of her wildly popular stories. The complexities of their marriage are depicted with intelligence and subtlety, as are her relationships with women - including cross-dressing noblewoman Mathilde, with whom Colette shared Paris first documented same-sex kiss on stage. Whip-smart, precocious and unapologetic, Colette is depicted as a talented author, actor and journalist but also as a feminist trailblazer, fighting for the right to her voice in a male-dominated world.Director: Wash WestmorelandCast: Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Eleanor Tomlinson, Denise GoughRun time: 1 hour, 51 mins
