Movie Review: Colette

This film is directed by Wash Westmoreland and it stars Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Denise Gough.

This film is about the French writer Colette who finds herself obligated to write a biography about her childhood. Her husband takes credit for her work and she later fights for ownership of her work.

I absolutely loved this film. I’m beginning to have a preference for dramatic films. The production design in the film is gorgeous and the story in this movie is intriguing and captivating. I wasn’t aware of who Colette was and of her importance in French literature. I found Colette’s story interesting and empowering. I was fascinated on how Colette evolved throughout the film not only as an artist but as a woman. Keira Knightley did an amazing job with this performance. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this movie have some Oscar nominations. Although this film takes place in the late 1800’s, it reflects on current issues for instance we see how women are treated and how LGBTQ members are treated. In this current era of the “Me Too” movement I believe this film is relatable and is a must watch. Please do yourself a favor and watch this film.

I give this movie a 9.5 out of 10
