The toast of Paris: Colette

PROMPT: Film Review Competition 2019

Every inspirational writer deserves to have a film written about them; Colette is no exception. Played by Keira Knightley, Colette’s character eccentric, modern relationship transcends the oh-to-usual face deep characters of Hollywood movies today. It was released in October, 2018 and scarcely takes influence from any other films like it.

All too often, Hollywood projects bland storylines with characters already in position of power. These characters then make something great, but with no real setbacks. Colette, on the other hand...

i realise how
pointless it all was.

the empty glances hide
my child's arm as she crosses the street.

or who i will become to be?

when i was older my mother would tell me
smarter frivolous things,
she'd always tell me that i was never dedicated enough,
too young for my craft.

but it is too late now,
the lumen has spread into...
