Coco Before Chanel (2009)
Every time I see a biopic, I get curious about how much has been fictionalized to make a good story. I know that some of it has to be, but if the movie is made well (which this one was), the dramatizations to the story don't feel implausible. My only problem with this movie (which is another thing characteristic of nearly all biopics) was that it dragged in the middle. While Coco was staying with Balsan, I was getting as restless and bored as she was. It's an inherent problem when a movie follows a person's life - some parts of their lives just aren't that interesting.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
