  • Colette [DVD] [2019]Colette | DVD | (13/05/2019) from £5.99   |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)   |  RRP £N/A

    Unconventional country girl Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette has married a charismatic egomaniacal man of letters, 14 years her senior, known by the single name, Willy. Through his auspices, Colette is introduced into the fecund world of the artistic demimonde in Paris where her creative appetite is sparked. Ever quick to capitalise on talent, Willy permits Colette to write her novels only if she does so in his name. The phenomenal success of her Claudine series makes Willy a famous writer and Colette and Willy the first modern celebrity couple. Although they are the toast of the town, lack of recognition for her work begins to gnaw on Colette. Their marriage starts to internally combust, fuelled by Willy's infidelities and Colette's growing interest in women - particularly her relationship with the gender-defying Missy - but emotionally and artistically, she cannot break free of him. On a downward slide, Willy resorts to increasingly desperate measures to pay his debts and sabotage his wife but Colette is developing resources of her own. Set at the dawn of the modern age, COLETTE is the story of a woman who has been denied her voice by an overbearing man, and who goes to extraordinary lengths to find it; a battle of the sexes at the very beginning of the modern age, when seismic shifts were taking place in the roles of men and women. More than a century after the publication of her first novel, Colette is still one of the best-selling, and beloved, French authors. Unfortunately, because Willy convinced her to ghostwrite for him, she doesn't get any of the credit for the phenomenon that her novel becomes. And in the years to come, while her and Willy's adventures become the talk of Paris, she defies everyone to get her name on the books she writes. Keira Knightley stars as ┬śColette' in this acclaimed drama, alongside Dominic West as Willy.

  • Still Alice [DVD]Still Alice | DVD | (06/07/2015) from £5.69   |  Saving you £10.30 (64.40%)   |  RRP £15.99

    Based on Lisa Genova's 2009 novel of the same name, 'Still Alice' is a frightening, heartbreaking, but ultimately inspiring drama featuring an astonishing Oscar and BAFTA-winning performance from Julianne Moore. At age fifty, Alice Howland (Julianne Moore) has it all: a Columbia University linguistics professorship, a devoted husband, and three loving children. Her life is a whirlwind of work and family, and she thrives on it. But, while lecturing at UCLA, something unexpected happens: mid-sentence, she struggles to find a word. Though a seemingly innocuous relapse, the incident leads to a diagnosis of early-onset Alzheimer's disease, a stunning realisation that sees the bonds between Alice and her family thoroughly tested.
