It’s safe to say that I am obsessed with Keira Knightley. I’ve loved her since I was 6 years old, watching Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl for the first time. She is one of the ultimate period drama actors. While she’s fantastic in everything she does, she’s never as entrancing as she is in period roles. And Colette is no exception. In fact, some are saying it’s her most memorable role yet.
Colette is about a young women who marries a writer, struggling to create more stories. So he enlists her help and she quickly becomes one of his ghost writers. But what she writes is more successful than anyone ever imagined. Her voice, unsurprisingly, resonates deeply with women everywhere, but of course, her husband takes all the credit. He will go to great lengths to ensure continued success, but Colette refuses to let him continue using her.
The fact that this is based on a true story makes it even more awe-inspiring. Also starring Dominic West and Eleanor Tomlinson, this is, without question, going to be one of the most stunning, empowering films of the year.
