Coco Before Chanel (2009)
Release Date: 25 September 2009
Gabrielle 'Coco' Chanel and her sister are abandoned by their father and sent to a convent orphanage. Fast-forwarding a few years, the siblings earn a meagre living as cabaret performers and as seamstresses at the back of a provincial tailor's shop. Gabrielle catches the eye of wealthy Etienne Balsan, who installs her as his plaything at a rural retreat, where she develops her unique fashion sense.
