A film I saw the trailer before Christmas and thought this looks interesting so I watched and I rather liked it. Based on the true story about Parisian writer Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette who married a very successful writer who was better known by his pen name of Willy who was the author of the Claudine Novels though as the film tells they were actually written by Gabrielle. The film follows Colette before her marriage and during it until her divorce which happened after Willy sold the rights to Claudine. Kiera Knightly returns to costume drama with her role as Colette and fits the role well. I learnt a lot about Colette duding the film and made me want to find out more about her afterwards which I guess was part of the point of this film though I expect those who have read more will probably know more about her, I did find out she wrote Gigi which is a book I have heard off. I liked the film and enjoyed it though I have no doubt some people won’t like it and would find boring though there are a few sex scenes and topless scenes to keep the boys watching.
I rate this a 3/5 (I may changing my rating scheme as don’t really like marking out of 5 or 10).
