Wash Westmoreland on Colette | Podcast

Sam talks to writer-director Wash Westmoreland about his new film Colette, in cinemas now.


A radiant Keira Knightley (Atonement, Anna Karenina) gives a career-best performance in this exhilarating, entertaining and timely film about the life of groundbreaking French novelist Colette, best known for Gigi.

In Belle Époque France, Colette’s marriage to Henry ‘Willy’ Gauthier-Villars (Dominic West) thrusts her from a simple country life in Burgundy to the creative demi-monde of Paris. A notorious libertine, fourteen years older than his naive country-girl wife, Willy encourages Colette to write (at times locking her in a room until she produces more). Publishing the results under his own name, he basks in the glory bestowed upon the hugely popular ‘Claudine’ stories, actually penned by his wife.

Colette is now showing at Picturehouse Cinemas.
