Keira Knightly absolutely put herself in contention for an Oscar in this marvelous performance as the early 2oth Century French writer Colette. She originally wrote her husband’s novels as in those times women writers were not widely read. After a long and tumultuous relationship with her devious husband she broke free to become France’s most popular writer. A powerful movie and her unbroken spirit shines through. Great job.
