[TRAILER] COLETTE – 2018

Like many creative fields, literature has historically been a boys’ club, often leaving women forced to write under male pseudonyms or under great privilege to have a hope of getting published. And in the case of celebrated French author Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, she didn’t even get the credit for her famous Claudine novels – instead, her husband Henry ‘Willy’ Gauthier-Villars stamped his name on the front and took all the plaudits. Now Colette’s story has been dramatised by Still Alice director Wash Westmoreland, with Keira Knightley starring as the literary icon and Dominic West as Willy.

As well as attempting to wrestle the credit back for her immensely popular work, Colette lived fearlessly and broke heteronormative societal values, embarking on same-sex relationships and stepping out in gender-neutral clothing. It’s a fascinating life story shot through with feminist themes, set against the backdrop of Paris at a turning point in history – and it’s coming out during Oscar season, so this one’s looking very promising.

Colette hits UK cinemas on 25 January, and will get an early airing at the BFI London Film Festival on 11 October.

SUNDANCE 2018 – “Colette” Interview

People Didn’t Understand ‘Colette’ 16 Years Ago Says Director Wash Westmoreland

In 2001, following a trip to France to see the places early 20th-century French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette lived and worked, writer/director Wash Westmoreland wrote the script for Colette in just ten days. “It only took 16 years after that to make the film,” he said at Deadline’s Sundance Studio. The film–starring Keira Knightley and Dominic West–follows Colette’s first marriage to Henry Gauthier-Villars, known as Willy–a Svengali type who encouraged her to write, and then took credit for her extremely popular work. Westmoreland also depicts her resulting awakening and refusal to bow to oppressive societal rules.

“In a way the project was ahead of its time when I was pitching to people and saying, ‘Oh and then Colette gets this lover who’s this woman who’s completely male-identified and she’s kind of a forerunner of today’s trans community,’” Westmoreland said. “I’d just get this completely blank stare from development people. That was 16 years ago and now of course that’s something people are very interested in.”

For Knightley, the story was intriguing.

“I think my first introduction would have been Gigi, the musical, and then I got obsessed with Cheri and The Last of Cheri,” she said of Colette’s writing. “I didn’t know anything about the first marriage, and her husband taking credit for her work, so I find it fascinating, the whole thing.”

“History hasn’t been very kind to him,” West added of his character, Willy. “He’s now known as the guy who stole Colette’s talent and art, and that’s what we’re hoping to disseminate with this film.”

For Westmoreland, Colette and Willy were very much an iconic celebrity couple of their time, like John Lennon and Yoko Ono. “The modern example of it would be Kim and Kanye,” he said. “Through their marriage you see a lot of the issues that were happening around gender, and the changes that were happening between men and women are reflected through their marriage.”

Sundance: Keira Knightley, Daisy Ridley and #MeToo Movement Films Make Lineup

The #MeToo movement is hitting Sundance.

A Gloria Allred documentary titled Seeing Allred will make its world premiere at Sundance 2018, joining a lineup of films that also includes the Keira Knightley-starrer Colette, Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot and the Daisy Ridley post-Star Wars vehicle Ophelia. The festival on Wednesday unveiled the 110 films from 29 countries that will screen as part of the U.S. Competition, World Competition and NEXT sections. Of the dramatic competition hopefuls, roughly one-third are directed by women. That’s a positive sign for the indie film industry when compared to studio film world, where women continue to represent less than 10 percent of directors.

“I don’t think you ever take a sigh of relief. It takes constant vigilance,” said John Cooper, director of the Sundance Film Festival. “I think what’s really changing for our audiences and for the filmmakers is just an awareness of how important other voices are not just to change in the world but also just as far as the entertainment factor, for fresh stories, for stories that are not just dull and boring. I think that’s what independent film has always done.”

The festival is set to kick off in and around Park City, Utah, on Jan. 18 and run through Jan. 28.

This year’s batch of films were selected from 13,468 submissions, including 3,901 feature-length films and 8,740 short films. Of the feature film submissions, 1,799 were from the U.S. and 2,102 were international. Last year, the fest drew 71,638 attendees.

A complete list of films screening in the U.S. Competition, World Competition and NEXT as well as Premieres, Midnight, Spotlight and Kids sections follows.

Presenting the world premieres of 16 narrative feature films, the Dramatic Competition offers festivalgoers a first look at groundbreaking new voices in American independent film. Films that have premiered in this category in recent years include Fruitvale Station, Patti Cake$, Swiss Army Man and The Diary of a Teenage Girl.

Du nouveau côté projets, encore !

keira-knightley-0304

Après confirmation de «Collateral Beauty» comme nouveau projets pour notre jolie Keira, une pluie de projets continue de tomber pour cette derniere. Après de simple rumeurs, nous avons désormais confirmation que Keira jouera bel et bien dans «Colette» basé sur l’histoire vraie d’un des plus grands romanciers féminins de la France du même nom qui a écrit «Gigi» et «Chéri», le film examinera la vie complexe de Colette et son mariage avec le critique Willy Gautheir-Villars et leur statut central dans les salons de Paris au tournant du siècle.

Ces livres ayant bénéficié de fortes ventes à Berlin cette année, un agent commercial de Hanway Films à senti qu’il fallait en faire un projet. C’est Wash Westmoreland qui dirigera «Colette», basé sur un scénario qu’il a co-écrit avec le regretté Richard Glatzer. La seule infos pour le moment que nous avons sur le film est que le tournage commencera normalement en mai à Budapest, Hongrie. A savoir aussi que le film sortira sur nos écrans français puisque le film a deja de nombreux distributeurs dans plusieurs pays dont la france chez Mars Distribution.
