Keira Knightley Stars in Film Adaption of NBM’s The Provocative Colette


The Provocative Colette

An installment of NBM Publishing’s comics biography series, The Provocative Colette, has been turned into a feature film premiering September 21st in select theaters nationwide. This historical drama, based on the true story of a French novelist in the 1890s, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and boasts an outstanding cast, including Keira Knightley. Colette was a gifted artist and an empowered woman—a writer who went uncredited for some of her finest work and a trailblazer who questioned oppressive notions of sexual orientation and gender identity. Though Colette’s feminism, especially for her day, has always been considered revolutionary, her story resonates even more strongly in the age of #MeToo.

For Knightley’s own reflections on playing the role of Colette, take a look at her latest profile in Variety—and to watch the official film trailer, visit Bleeker Street Media.
