Certificate 15.  Running time: 1hr 51min. Biography, Drama, History.  Doors open at 7pm

Based on a true story and starring Keira Knightley, Fiona Shaw and Dominic West

Paris in the 19th century and 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.

This is based on a true story and set in Paris in the late 19th Century. Colette (Keira Knightley), a beautiful country girl living in Burgundy is seduced by and then married to the much older Parisian ‘literary entrepreneur’ Willy (Dominic West). Willy is a “brand” in Paris: a well-known critic turned author. The only problem being that he does virtually no writing of his own using ghost writers to produce his books.

Colette exhibits a gift for writing slightly lascivious tales of her life (under the pseudonym Claudine) at her girl’s school, where night time swimming lessons appeared to have taught a little more than back stroke.  As a result, Willy fills a financial hole by publishing Colette’s work in his name.

The books fly off the shelves faster than the publishers can print them. But Willy has expensive habits and Colette gets locked into writing an ever-popular series but without a voice of her own.
