Free-thinking, boundary-pushing French author and iconoclast Sidonie-Gabrille ‘Colette’ (Knightley) finally gets the biopic treatment with this charming, rollicking film. The story focuses on Colette’s marriage and professional relationship with sleazy publisher Willy (West), and her growth from provincial maiden to a rule-breaking, defiant writer and feminist who led one of the most exciting lives of the 20th century.
