When Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley) marries a successful Parisian writer known commonly as “Willy” (Dominic West) and moves from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendour of Paris, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She pens a semi-autobiographical novel that sparks a bestseller and a cultural sensation, inspiring additional novels. Colette’s fight over creative ownership defies gender roles and drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionising literature, fashion and sexual expression.
