Ciné-Club: Coco Before Chanel

Back to school, back to work, back to reality! Because September is a perfect time for starting new things, we’ve picked films this month that are all about Beginnings. We open with Coco Before Chanel, a biopic about the early life of the famed fashion designer. Audrey Tautou shines as the headstrong heroine of this rags-to-riches story. 

 

Definitely not just for the fashion slaves; this is an inspiring portrait of a woman who cut her own cloth to fit. - Film4
