What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
John DeFore Colette recounts a torrid journey to fame.
Joan Hambidge Mooier Colette getrou aan vrou wat stem.
Alex Isaacs From sexism to bigotry and abuse this award contender is about so much more than period costumes and love gone sour. It’s about a brilliant woman discovering that sexual freedom, creative expression and self-affirmation are all hers for the taking.
Tomatometer Formally familiar but a brilliant match for its lead, Colette is a thoroughly entertaining biopic and an overdue testament to Keira Knightley’s underrated gifts.
