Keira Knightley continues her push to become someone other than Elizabeth Swan. She has the talent and the following to make it happen, but she has yet to find anything can be as successful as the high grossing films she has been known for her whole career. This time taking on Colette in her journey of becoming famous in her own right, and not just her husbands.
Colette follows the journey of many movies before. The story of women who put in the work for other men to succeed instead. This time in the form of a writer whose credit is all given to the husband. Trying to bring this story arc into something new in 2018 they added the additional element of highlighting a sexual relationship with another woman. Not saying it wasn't happening back then, but every movie feels like it makes the movie "better" or more "Oscar worthy" if they include a up to date reference and topic.
This movie gave the audience everything they wanted, there wasn't many secrets to be discovered or a plot to want more answers to. It simply gave a story of a hard-working, sly woman who fought her way to the top. In the end, she is where we all expected with the misfit partners that joined ever so slowly. This won't be Keira's non-pirates' breakthrough
