Keira Knightley And Wash Westmoreland On ‘Colette’: “She’s A Singular Being” – Toronto Studio

Stopping off at TIFF before its October visit to the London Film Festival, Wash Westmoreland’s Sundance hit Colette gave audiences a history lesson with the story of novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, also known as “the Venus of the Belle Époque”. As played by Keira Knightley, Colette was a woman ahead of her time, flaunting the dress codes and sexual mores of the time, leading a scandalous life with her husband Willy (Dominic West), a major literary celebrity in Paris.
