This week, the story of Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette's life comes to the big screen with the premiere of Colette. Keira Knightley stars as the titular literary icon from her humble beginnings in the French countryside to her marriage to a prominent author and her relationships with numerous women. All the while, her Claudine book series inspired a generation of women.
