CFF // Colette

Dir Wash Westmoreland | 2018 | UK/USA /Hungary | 111 mins | Drama, Historical Biopic

Premiering at Sundance 2018 to rave reviews, this exhilarating period drama stars Keira Knightley (Atonement, Pirates of the Caribbean) alongside Dominic West (The Wire, Appropriate Adult) and Eleanor Tomlinson (Poldark), in a career-best performance as the groundbreaking French novelist, Colette (best known for Gigi). Intelligent and nuanced, the film depicts Colette’s complex marriage—which includes allowing her work to be published under her husband’s name—and her relationships with women, including Paris’ first documented same-sex kiss on stage. 

With timely relevance to the #MeToo era of female empowerment, this uniquely talented author, actor and journalist is shown to have been a whip-smart feminist trailblazer, fighting for the survival of her voice in a male-dominated world and shining a light for future generations of female artists.

This screening presents a rare opportunity to see Colette ahead of its official release next year.
