Storyline

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 splendor of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite 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, Colette and Willy 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. Directed by Wash Westmoreland and written by Wash Westmoreland, Richard Glatzer, Rebecca Lenkiewicz. Written by Bleecker Street

This movie should be rated R
10 December 2018 | by trinaboiceSee all my reviews

I was looking forward to this, as an author of 24 books, but was disappointed that so much time was spent on the sex scandals. The content and some of the nudity and sex scenes should have made this rated R. This is definitely not a family-friendly film. You can read my full movie review at Movie Review Mom (dot) com.
