Colette tells the real-life story of a woman whose creative genius was siphoned by a man who was given all the credit for her work — light and fun!
In the period piece, Keira Knightley plays the titular character who marries a successful Parisian writer who convinces her to ghostwrite for him. Colette pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a character named Claudine, and the novel skyrockets, becoming a cultural sensation.
In the trailer, we see the nominal character struggle with gender roles, creative control, and her own blossoming sexuality as she becomes “interested” in another man’s wife. The sexual tension bubbles over in the three-minute trailer — and I can’t wait to see the whole movie.
Colette is set to be released on September 21.
