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. I truly believe that Keira Knightley is a very good actress? But jeez it feels like she has been type casted again and again with this kind of movies and 'Colette' was no different either. Dull, Boring and just very uninteresting as a whole? This movie did nothing to me to impress me especially the whole gender norms and all? I think were a bit too much and hardly made any sense either too in the end. (3/10)

Keira Knightley deserves better..Reviewed byBatmanFunReviews2018Vote: 3/10
This movie is a breath of fresh air in regards to feminist films and queer films. Not once did I roll my eyes and believe that the creators were forcing "woman power" themes. Not once did I think the queerness was disrespectful or fetishistic. I did not feel as if I was being taught a lesson, and so I was completely absorbed throughout. Colette was unapologetically herself, her growth from timid girl to unabashed performer mesmerizing. Her relationship with Missy was sweet and tender, so different from her business-like relationship with Willy.
Even Willy was a magnificent character. My problem with most queer-related films are the men; too often are they cast as pure, one-dimensional abusive villains. Was Willy a bastard? Yes. I believe he acted as the system wanted men to act, but he truly loved Colette. The problem was that he loved himself more, deluded himself into thinking that he had the same talent as his wife had. The way in which Willy shifts from worshipping Colette to seeing her as his inferior merely because she is a woman is an authentic portrayal of a relationship in which neither is good for the other. The success in Willy's character is that you could laugh at him, hate him, and ultimately feel sorry for him. He will never be as great as he wants to be and occasionally thinks himself to be, and it is poetic justice to the wonderfully extreme.
The proud, talented characters drive this film, and by god am I glad to have seen it. But the Claudine roleplaying sex scene? Oof. Creepy!
I was looking forward to this, as an author of 24 books, but was disappointed that so much time was spent on the sex scandals. The content and some of the nudity and sex scenes should have made this rated R. This is definitely not a family-friendly film. You can read my full movie review at Movie Review Mom (dot) com.
