Colette - Cinema with CJ ReviewReviewed bycinemawithcjVote: 6/10

Colette is a film that struggles to find itself and once it finally does, it's where it should have been all along.

Whether that was intentional or not, that too is the actual journey of the titular character here, played by Keira Knightley who once again dusts off the corsets and costumes of centuries gone by.

The newest film by director Wash Westmoreland, director of the brilliant Julianne Moore vehicle Still Alice, Colette once again pulls out a brilliant lead female performance that deals with identity and loss of control, albeit in different circumstances.

Colette, in its construction, is a very capable movie. It lacks in the flair and the style and the voice, but it's parts help keep it together. At its head, we have Knightley and Dominic West's back and forth, West being the icon who thrives in the franchise built on ghostwriting taking France by storm, and Knightley being the ghostwriter who realises the changing ways of society and the changing ways of how she sees the world and people begins to shape her into the force she was always meant to be.

At times it's hard to stick with Colette, because it feels a bit stuck in its ways. For all the interesting stories contained in its 111 minute runtime, it all feels a little flat and unremarkable. Not through the execution, but the timing. There's nothing outrageous about its content, it's bohemian lifestyle in this day and age. Which is a good sign of our still changing times, but also means that Colette is a film that will pass by many. Not only written off because of it being a Keira Knightley costume drama, but also because it's nothing we haven't seen before.

Colette deals with all manner of things. Sexism, identity, gender, relationships, writing, creativity, voice, sex, deception. There's a whole cavalcade of buzzwords and spicy themes, and while it's fun and interesting to watch it, there's just nothing about Colette that really injects you with a sign that this film is something special.

For someone unaware of the story behind the story, Colette certainly remains interesting in how Colette's literary creation became such a phenomenon and however it skyrocketed, she was always pushed to the side of the bombastic brand created and lauded by her husband.

Colette lives such an interesting life as we watch it progress through her early years, it gives us a good germ of a biopic story.

It just lacks something. It doesn't have that secret sauce that puts it aside from similar movies. It certainly has some utterly brilliant costume design (criminally unrecognised but understandable in the world of The Favourite), and it gives us career best performances from Knightley and West...and yet...it inspires not too much beyond a "Yeah, that was good".

Colette will not set the world on fire like her literary creation did. It's the slightest snag but to have a British production meld with a French setting (down to characters writing in French but of course being English) makes one curious to see if a completely French production would change things. Much like the scenes of Colette's character Claudine being so huge she got adapted for the stage, the movie Colette looks like it has a lot of the key details. But it's slightly off, and it's not as good as the real deal.

Knightley and West shineReviewed byAlexander_BlanchettVote: 7/10

Pretty decent and well done Movie about the birth of feminism. Sort of. The screenplay is well drafted and offers Interesting Characters and Good Story Development .Keira Knightley is great. She really loves doing period pieces and is absolutely in her Element. The more outstanding Performance however Came from Dominic West who really Showed his Acting weapons. I really didnt know he had it in him. Good Support by Fiona Shaw who did Not overact for a change and delivered a well-Nuanced Performance. Despite some lenghts the Film is Important and perfectly fits into the #metoo area. Nice score and production Design as well.

Middle of the road girl power!Reviewed bykaptenvideo-89875Vote: 6/10

For a 33-year-old British film star, Keira Knightley has had a superb career. She has already starred in a number of well-received and/or successful movies, from indie hits to pure popcorn to dramas.

But still, after 20+ year career and near 100 nominations, there's still no major acting awards. No Oscars, Globes, BAFTAs... even Alliance of Women Film Journalists and British Independent Film Awards have left her cold.

What gives? Everybody knows she can act but maybe she needs to find more remarkable characters to truly make her mark?

These may be the questions Knightley and her agent have faced, because "Colette" seems to be a movie tailored to address these issues.

Above all, it gives her a chance to appear as a strong female figure - historical one, no less, a scandalous sensual writer of 19th century who left his good-for-nothing famous husband, began dressing as a man and sleeping with other girls.

It's also a prestige picture, made for awards season, both looking very glamorous and carrying the always-important topic of girl power. And it's a period piece which Knightley has a lots of experience with anyway. So, win-win from every angle, right?

And it starts strong, it does. Keira looks gorgeous, the whole end of the 19th century Parisian and French life looks fabulous - although it was actually filmed in Hungary. This movie is a looker for sure, Oscar noms for set/art design and costumes seem certain.

Knightley also has a great support in the form of Dominic West as Colette's husband, a party-loving, women-seducing famous author who doesn't actually pen much which is published under his name.

This is untypically flamboyant character for West, and he takes the most of it, becoming the life of the party both in his life and in the movie.

The screen veteran doesn't overshadow or steal Knightley's central place but the result would be much less fun to watch if there was less of him.

Speaking of fun, it should be mentioned that despite its awards aspirations and women's lib theme, "Colette" doesn't take itself very seriously.

It's best described as soap opera with big budget - like a fairy tale for adults, offering some snacks for thought but mainly made for easy watching.

The good thing is that authors have found just a right balance between serious and entertaining, so the movie never drags or gets bogged down by some of its heavier themes such as women's sexuality or position in the society.

The bad thing is that despite its enjoyable performances and intriguing characters, it never delves anything deeper either, not philosophically, not on story level.

Even worse, the authors have had trouble accomodating everything they wanted to show about Colette's life.

Because there's so much content and so little time, the story picks up the tempo at some point and just starts rushing from one important "moment" to the next, not giving anything proper room or time to evolve naturally.

After a while, it gets hard to sense there are real conflicts in heroine's life, because everything always just smoothly falls in its right place, or falls away. Honestly, it would work much better in a longer mini-series or something, with more time to work with.

So, "Colette" may have been devised as Keira Knightley's career's next defining moment but what we get is something rather tame and easily digestible for the YA (young adult) crowd, probably for those who liked "Suffragette" and "Wonder Woman".

So if you like the idea of "strong" female figures but actually care more about their looks, or movie looking beautiful, then you may have found your next favorite eye-candy.
