From rags to riches to Haute-Couture: the incredible story of Coco Chanel. In a remarkable tour de force portrayal, the lovely Audrey Tautou (Hunting and Gathering, Priceless, The Da Vinci Code) becomes the legendary style icon Coco Chanel. From her humble beginnings at a French country orphanage to the extravagant heights of Parisian society, Chanel's indomitable creative spirit was expressed as a dance hall singer, seamstress, social rebel and fashion icon.
Benoit Poelvoorde and Alessandro Nivola portray the men of wealth and elegance infatuated with the multi-faceted Coco Chanel, whose vision and style - inspired by fashion and fueled by passion - paved a daring new way for modern women to look, dress and live their lives.
