The Paris Theatre: Q&As Friday 10/5 and Saturday 10/6 following the 7:00pm shows with Director Wash Westmoreland
From Director Wash Westmoreland (STILL ALICE), COLLETTE is being heralded by Variety as "one of the great roles for which Keira Knightley will be remembered." Colette (Knightley) is transplanted from her childhood home to Paris after marrying successful writer Willy (Dominic West). After being convinced to ghostwrite for him Collete pens a semi-autobiographical novel about a witty and brazen country girl named Claudine, sparking a bestseller and a cultural sensation. After its success, Colette and Willy become the talk of Paris and their sexual adventures with other women inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette's fight over creative ownership and gender roles drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.
