Goofs

In Deauville, the newspaper headline announcing the outbreak of the war incorrectly states, "Archduke Francis Joseph" had been assassinated in Sarajevo. Francis (Franz) Joseph was the reigning Austrian emperor and was not most certainly not assassinated. His nephew and heir to the empire, Francis (Franz) Ferdinand was assassinated. See more »

Started off great, but plummeted due to several major flaws
22 April 2012 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I was enjoying the first half of the movie, but it started to drag by hour 2 with still some time on the clock...but it was a made-for-TV movie, so...

The younger Chanel was great, but Shirley MacClaine was a horrible choice for the older Coco. She may be a great actress but cannot pull off being a Frenchwoman! I cringed whenever she opened her mouth.

Finally, after the movie I did some research about the real Coco and the movie totally glossed over her antisemitism, homophobia, and pro-Nazism. It is hard for me to think of her as icon after learning that. Of course, the irony is that Chanel is now headed by two Jewish men whom she previously derided.
