Colette

Keira Knightley and period dramas go together like strawberries and cream, and in COLETTE, they make for an especially delicious pairing. British screenwriter Rebecca Lenkiewicz and British director Wash Westmoreland combine forces to deliver the glamour of MOULIN ROUGE and the seductiveness of CAROL with the ferocity of THE FAVOURITE.
