Colette review: Keira Knightley excels as the ghostwriter who said: time\s up
Keira Knightley leads the glamour at star-studded Colette premiere
Shes playing the main character of her new movie, starring the likes of Dominic West and Eleanor Tomlinson.

And Keira Knightley made sure she led the glamour at the star-studded premiere of Colette in Leicester Square, London, on Thursday.

The film was very well-received here, with many an appreciative laugh heard during the more relevant jokes and topics raised during the film. This period piece is quite relatable to a lot of people today, with the struggle of gender norms a hot button issue. The filmmakers play on that during several scenes. Colette herself will be admired by many, as she develops from cute, timid farmhouse girl to a fully-independent woman who does exactly what she wants and isn’t afraid to confront any man. Credit to the screenwriters for that – this is a story set in the 1890’s, but it manages to be a forward-thinking film, too.
