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.
Colette tells the fascinating story of the woman behind the scandalous Claudine novels (and later Gigi) that dazzled French society in the first half of the 20th Century. The film depicts her rise from country girl to darling of the Parisian demi-monde with her husband Henry ‘Willy’ Gauthier-Villars. A critic and author in his own right, he mentors and later betrays her, as her stories gain them fame and notoriety. A compelling insight into this passionate young woman’s journey to create independence, Colette is from the producers of Carol and Still Alice.
