Check out the plot synopsis of Colette, the upcoming biography drama movie directed by Wash Westmoreland based on a script he co-wrote with Richard Glatzer, and Rebecca Lenkiewicz and starring Keira Knightley, Dominic West, Fiona Shaw, Robert Pugh, Denise Gough, Dickie Beau, Ray Panthaki, Shannon Tarbet, Rebecca Root, and Arabella Weir:
“Keira Knightley plays Colette in the fascinating story of the woman behind the scandalous Claudine and Gigi novels that dazzled French society in 1920s Paris.
The film follows Colette’s rise from country girl to darling of the Parisian demi-monde with her husband Willy Gauthier-Villars (Dominic West). An author in his own right, Willy mentors Colette and later betrays her, as her stories gain them fame and notoriety.
COLETTE is a compelling insight into the life of a brilliant young woman as she forges her own independence.”
