After marrying a successful Parisian writer, twice her age (Dominic West) the young Colette (Keira Knightly) is persuaded to ghost-write stories that he claims credit for. They are semi-autobiographical novels about a young girl from the country called Claudine and become best sellers. Colette and her controlling husband are the toast of Paris as the books become ever more popular.
Eventually Colette insists that her authorship is recognised and she begins to break away from the cultural and sexual constraints of the time, insisting on self-expression and independence.
“A gritty, glamorous biopic” (Mark Kermode)
