After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as "Willy" (Dominic West), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendour of Paris.
Willy convinces Colette to ghost-write for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, they become the talk of Paris and their adventures inspire additional Claudine novels.
Colette's fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.
Director Westmoreland (Still Alice) and cinematographer Giles Nuttgens have created a visually fabulous film, Paris is scrumptiously decadent as Colette navigates the city's eclectic, gossipy social scene.
