Keira Knightley is searingly good in this story of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, who married a Parisian writer named Willy, ghostwrote a book about a young woman named Claudine, and watched as it became a hit — for him. The sudden success of her book, and her own explorations of gender and sexuality in the sophisticated heights of Paris at the turn of the 20th century, lead her to question her role as a ghostwriter and a wife. It’s a gorgeous art-house movie of the sort that just isn’t made much anymore, and Knightley is perfect in the lead role.
Colette opens Tuesday, November 13, and plays Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday at 7:30.
