After marrying successful Parisian writer Henry Gauthier-Villars, known commonly as "Willy" (Dominic West), 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. Colette, in turn, pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After it's 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.Written by
Colette's writing began in France in the summer of 2001 under the title of Colette and Willy. Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland were planning to settle in a Paris apartment loaned by a friend but they had the unpleasant surprise to discover once there that the housing had been rented. They had to fall back on a country house that turned out to be a fifteenth-century manor in a sorry state without internet or television. Totally cut off from the modern world, the duo was able to lay a first version of the scenario in about ten days. But the writing was far from over: no less than twenty versions of the script have emerged in sixteen years. See more »
At the start of the film the Wisteria is in bloom suggesting that it is late spring, however Colette's mother asks her to pick some Blackberries, which would not be ripe for picking until late summer/early autumn. See more »

There is a dedication to Richard Glatzer, who co-wrote the film's screenplay with Wash Westmoreland, shortly before the closing credits: "For Richard". See more »
This movie is downright depressing. Keira Knightly was playing some other character, not as I always envisioned Colette from her novels, Cherie and The Last of Cherie, not to mention her stage play Gigi. Should have given this movie another title.
