'My name is Colette, and the hand that holds the pen, writes history.'

Based on the incredible true story of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette who defied everyone to become herself.

"Remarkable, captivating and utterly fascinating" - Metro 4*

"One of the great roles for which Kiera Knightly will be remembered" - Variety

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 defies gender roles and drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.
