Colette becomes an intelligent discourse on how - in a patriarchal society - the genius of talented women is not easily recognized, but, on the contrary, tends to be invisible. [Full review in Spanish]
COLETTE is the rare film that overcomes a personal malaise [for historical biopics]. Skillful cinematography, excellent performances, and a willingness not to sanitize things are all to the good in this effort.
Knightley excels -- Colette's growing confidence is entirely believable, precisely because she's never a complete walkover, even at the beginning. Her blossoming as an independent woman and as a writer feels like a natural progression.
