Keira Knightley is a queer ghostwriter in first trailer for Colette

Kiera Knightley returns to the period drama genre in the first official trailer for Colette.

The Oscar-nominated actress stars as the Nobel Prize-winning French novelist Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, who went on to become a leading literary figure and a sexual revolutionary in the late 1800s.

The film chronicles her marriage to the charismatic Parisian, Henry Gauthier-Villars (Dominic West), who convinces her to ghostwrite a series of novels to be published under his pseudonym ‘Willy’.

In the trailer, we also see Colette explore her gender-fluidity and her relationship with French noblewoman Mathilde de Morny (Denise Gough).

Colette also stars Aiysha Hart, Fiona Shaw, Robert Pugh, Rebecca Root, Eleanor Tomlinson, and Julian Wadham.

The biopic has received critical acclaim so far, with a 100% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes (as of 12 July).

It is due for release in cinemas on 21 September 2018. Watch the trailer below.
