Colette is pushed by her husband to write novels under his name. Upon their success, she fights to make her talents known, challenging gender norms. I truly believe that Keira Knightley is a very good actress? But jeez it feels like she has been type casted again and again with this kind of movies and 'Colette' was no different either. Dull, Boring and just very uninteresting as a whole? This movie did nothing to me to impress me especially the whole gender norms and all? I think were a bit too much and hardly made any sense either too in the end. (3/10)
