Barbora Bobulova as the young Coco Chanel was wonderful in the role, she had the toughness and charm.
Shirley McLaine was terrific too! The love interests of Coco Chanel were handsome. I watched the movie several times because the story is inspiring, from poverty to super fashion designer. I even looked up Coco Chanel, curious about how everyone really looked. Well, when a movie inspires me to do more research, it's always a good thing. It was great to learn about the cultural ways during her time, how women could only wear long, uncomfortable dresses, thank goodness that's in the past (well in most society at least).
