Colette. I have never been a fan period costume dramas, and I went to see this simply because with my Limitless card, the more films I see the less each ones cost, It was absolutely BRILLIANT. It felt so modern. Dominic West was absolutely fantastic as the arrogant, charismatic, and yet slightly scared publisher; his young wife is actually a better writer than him. Keira Knightly is splendid as the lead.and it's easy to dismiss her performance.
It's absolutely brilliant, it evokes so many issues, I mean I can't explain this without spoilng. I mean there's sexual politics and this is fin de ciecle
I LOVED it. and I'm not someone who has ever enjoyed period dramas. Prior to The Favourite anyway.
