Colette

“Colette” is a period piece starring Keira Knightley as the title character from the turn of the 20th century, the writer/actress. It starts as another story of a husband taking credit for his wife’s writings. This time she is somewhat rebellious and being a part of an open marriage, she likes women. Beautifully filmed and Knightley is gorgeous, even as a sweet country girl who eventually takes Paris by storm. Dominic West, who plays her husband, is equally as good. The film is slow in places, but overall well done. An interesting piece of history, not a lot of action, but an interesting story with some modern twists. Colette was definitely  ahead of her time.
