Universal Pictures has set a digital release date for “Colette,” starring Keira Knightley and based on a true story. The film will first launch on Digital HD and the digital movie app Movies Anywhere on December 4th, it will then release on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on December 11th.
The biopic tells the story of an independent and forward-thinking woman who overcomes her controlling husband and cultural mores to pursue her artistic and dramatic desires. After marrying a successful Parisian writer known commonly as “Willy” (Dominic West (Tomb Raider, “The Affair”)), Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette (Keira Knightley (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement)) is transplanted from her childhood home in rural France to the intellectual and artistic splendor of Paris. Soon after, Willy convinces Colette to ghostwrite for him. She 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 adventures inspire additional Claudine novels. Colette’s fight over creative ownership defies gender roles and drives her to overcome societal constraints, revolutionizing literature, fashion and sexual expression.
“Colette” was directed by Wash Westmoreland and written by Wash Westmoreland, Richard Glatzer, Rebecca Lenkiewicz.
